Reflections in a golden eye is golden again,
This review is from: The Marlon Brando Collection (Julius Caesar / Mutiny on the Bounty 1962 / Reflections in a Golden Eye / The Teahouse of the August Moon / The Formula ) (DVD)
Yes,the disk of relections in a golden eye is indeed in the original golden colored treatment as intended by director John Huston.Restored by Warner Bros you can now see this great film in the version intended by its creator.A unique experience.Forty years ahead of its time.A must for film collectors and admirers of Huston as a director.The color treatment adds immeasurably to the power of the narrative and lends a hypnotic and dreamlike edge to this disturbing and provocative film.Get it.Hard to believe the packaging does not mention the gold in this collection.

It's too bad Warner didn't give us both versions on DVD, because when I watched the trailer and saw those parts of the film in regular color I almost preferred it that way. Genius, no doubt, the way it was done originally, and not merely a gimic, but this unique style marginalizes the movie more than it should-- in regular color we can enjoy the actor's great peformances and the scenery simply for what they are.

"Yes, 'Reflections in a Golden Eye' is a fine, fine film for 'Brokeback Mountain' fans."

@FoFW: I agree with you. I first got to know the film in its Technicolor version and that may be the reason for my preference. The Technicolor version is full of vibrant colors, which I rather liked and found interesting. I wish both versions had been made available. I was taken aback at first at the golden-tinted release, disappointed even. The movie seemed muted to me in the golden tint and I missed the vibrant colors that ran throughout the film.

Joel, hit the space bar once after commas and twice after periods (or any other punctuation mark that completes a sentence).
