Sean Baker’s review published on Letterboxd :
This was a first time watch for me. And thanks to Arrow Films, I was able to watch the brand new scan and restoration on Blu-ray. It was an experience because I was overwhelmed with the beauty of this film. I'm speaking to both picture and sound. It's a real technical feat.
Vilmos Zsigmond shot this Panavision (anamorphic) and it's GORGEOUS. Really bold lighting (or lack of lighting) and such rich, immersive images. I wish I had a list of the lenses.
I had no idea that Susannah York was a writer. This film is based on her book In Search of Unicorns. And her writing is strong... always felt I was catching up with the screenplay which is much better than being ahead.
The film played competition at Cannes and Susannah York won Best Actress. Nominated for Best Music, Original Dramatic Score for John Williams.
Watched Arrow Films Blu-ray - great extras
