Could this finally be a WIDESCREEN VERSION??!! I hope so! This is a classic movie that's sadly only been available in cropped full screen format.

** Time to celebrate! I just read somewhere that this will be a 20 year anniversary release! **

This movie is really strong, you can really feel the character Jamie (Michael J Fox) suffering in this. Left by his wife, heavy into drugs and drinking. He is in really bad shape. His friend(?) Allagash (Kiefer Sutherland) is a really party-goer and is his friendship superficial ? Questions you ask yourselves. Have hanged out with guys like Allagash so i can relate to that relationship.
There are very emotional scenes in this, Jamie learning his ex-wife is in town and goes to one of her modeling shows drunk and trying to get an explanation why she left him, she coldly ignores him. And he gets thrown out.
I don't want to give up to much about the story but there is one even stronger scene in the end when he gets contact with his ex. I could relate to many things in this movie and it's probably why I like it so much.

The commentary track is one of the best I've heard.

Audio is DD Surround and it is really sweet to have the eighties back in the room.

Buy it !

This movie illustrates the sad fact of drug abuse and all the damage that is done.

Tracy Pollan is sweet in it as the love interest.

What I like was seeing a young Kiefer Sutherland getting his acting chops
who was all too believable as the friend that is too self centered.

Overall, I just found it depressing. I want to be entertained by movies
not demoralized. But for what it is, it hit its mark as a cautionary tale.
