"Score" is a fast paced comedy about the interactions between two couples, and things eventually get pretty down and dirty without ever being X rated. Even better, the Blu-Ray looks magnificent, and there is a long interview with actress Lynn Lowry, behind the scenes footage featuring Radley Metzger in action on the set, and best yet an audio commentary by the reclusive director, all items alone worth the price. But the icing on the cake is that the movie is finally uncut for the first time in over 35 years.
I have seen the VHS of 'Score" and it was obviously the censored version. The interplay of dialogue and characters was there, but 15 minutes of man-on-man love making was missing. While not explicit, it is pretty graphic and I was shocked. If you are a homophobic male or think such images might upset you, STAY AWAY! However, if you truly want to see the 1970's swing in all directions, this is the best possible movie available in terms of acting, script, and direction.
Radley Metzger is generally considered the one true auteur of the sexploitation movies, and he consistently produced superior work even after drifting into porn. "Score" is perhaps his best work, literate, funny, and incredibly daring. Even 38 years after it was shot it still caught me off guard! If this sounds interesting, you can find no better document of the Sexual Revolution than 'Score".
Score should appeal not only to Radley Metzger and gay cinema fans, but to a wider audience who are looking for the interplay between saucily-written dialogue, clever cinematography, and on-screen chemistry between: men and women, women and women, and men and men. Score is a sexual banquet sure to satisfy almost every appetite.
The DVD transfer is fine albeit imperfect, the sound could be improved, and the special features are worth viewing, but the real reason to get this DVD is to enjoy the uncut version of Score for the first time since it originally played in a few cinemas in the 1970s.
I've been a fan of this film for a while. In the previous video releases, there have always been awkward cuts where the music is horribly out of sync. This new blu-ray release seems to indicate that it is now "uncut and uncensored." I can't vouch for its completeness, but the music cues now seem in check, and there are several "new" scenes that were not present in previous video versions. The new hardcore gay and lesbian scenes are graphic but are not anything that I have not seen in other "mainstream" releases (although mostly independents). The best thing, though, is that the film now "flows" better. The blu-ray does not feature a good print; it's scratched and full of dirt and debris. Colors are good; one of the male characters wears a red handkerchief which pops on screen. The audio is a disappointing Dolby Digital 2.0 mono; early news reported a DTS-HD MA 2.0, but that is not present here. Audio is below average, and sometimes seem out of sync, but that is probably inherent to the original print and not necessarily a flaw of the blu-ray. There are several bonus features that showcase original footage from the filming but the best feature is an interview with Lynn Lowry; she is 60+ years old but looks amazingly like she did when the film was made. The included trailer is great but it's too long and should not be reviewed before watching the main feature.
