Of the top five or so movies that have had the greatest impression on me, no movie had the personal impact as did "Flashdance." I was going through, what I like to call, a "character building" period in my life after having moved to California a little less than a year before this movie came out. Long story short: no job, no car, no money when a friend of mine called and said he wanted me to go see "Flashdance," with him- his treat. After a little coercing, I gave in.
Yes, the movie has a typical or predictable plot, but I would not call it weak because of the actors and the memorable characters they created. The viewer is bonded to the characters in this movie- one cares what happens to them. The cinematography in this movie is great, especially the opening credit scenes of Pittsburgh as Alex is riding her bike to work. No, this movie doesn't have "5-star" acting... I think that would have ruined this whole movie. It has, what I would call, "real-life" acting: not that polished and maybe stumbles a bit here and there. It gives this movie its strength, not a weakness.
Not only are the musical scenes great, the background musical interludes chosen also help set the feeling in many of the scenes... "Lady, Lady, Lady," sung by Joe Esposito playing during a tender romantic scene between Alex and her boss, and- my favorite- "I'll Be Here Where The Heart Is," sung by Kim Carnes played during one of Alex's low-points in the film.
The highlight of the film is its finale when Alex is auditioning in front of the Pittsburgh Dance and Conservatory Company's selection committee. I would call it one of the greatest movie moments of all time.

You just keep waiting for that Oscar-winning title song to come around again; it's gotta be the most joyful, uplifting, foot-stompin', head and hip swinging tune ever written for a movie. Jennifer Beals works as a welder by day, but does sexy dancing in a club at night, practicing constantly for a chance to audition for the formal dance school, tho she'd never had formal training and feels inferior to the others in the audition lines.
As reality, it won't float. But as an energetic and boisterous vehicle for a sweet story and some of the best music and dancing ever seen on screen, it's a five-star winner.

Words can't describe how much I love this film. This was the film that made me want to become a dancer. I love the opening dance scene and I've always wanted to re-create it. Jennifer Beals is a great actress and it's hard to believe that she was only 18 years old when this film was made. Michael Nouri is great as well. This film also has an incredible soundtrack and the title song is one of my favorites. The story is one that any dancer can relate to. Before I go to an audition I always try to watch the end scene in this film or listen to the song "What a Feeling." I absolutely adore this film and I hope that many young dancers will enjoy it too.

Okay, I've read some of the negative reviews on Flashdance, and all I can say is they make me feel sick! "Flashdance" is a cultural icon that started so much that we commonly see today in film. I was 2 years old when this movie came out...My mother took me to see it, for reasons that are unknown. However, since that day back in 1983, this movie has been a part of my life in every way. Jennifer Beals is an angel that is extremely under-appreciated. I am an avid collector of Flashdance memoribilia, which most people find odd for a 21 year old guy. But Hey! It touched me in a weird way, and it really affected me with its serious and powerful meaning. "Take your passion and make it happen" Is there a better phrase for inspirational motivation? No, I dont think so!

I've seen the movie before but had forgotten the part where Alex plays the stupid "I want to do it all by myself" rejection of Nick's already provided help after lengthy 18 year old shyness about even submitting the application. The universe is sparse enough of genuine facilitators that such a response was absurd. When the universe genuinely provides what a person wants and needs, acceptance and "going for it" is the only appropriate response. Fortunately Alex shaped up to make her mentor Hanna posthumously proud of her. Good character building pointers for the plethora of lackadaisical millenials scared of their own shadows.

VIDEO:

Flashdance arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC @ 26 MBPS 1080p 1.78: 1 encode. Continuing the theme of contrasts, director Adrian Lyne and cinematographer Don Peterman shot a movie about artistic aspiration in the gritty urban style pioneered by Lyne's countryman Alan Parker for Fame (1980). Lyne then softened the imagery by dispersing smoke into the air in almost every shot such that, according to editor Bud Smith, there were always a few takes that couldn't be used because the actors were obscured. (Midway through production, the studio panicked and ordered that no more smoke be used, and Lyne posted an assistant to watch for the approach of any studio people, so that the smoke machine could be hidden before they arrived.) The result is an often soft, delicately colored image of a type that has gone almost entirely out of fashion in today's world of digital photography and post-production. The grain and texture of the imagery have been retained without diminishment. Blacks are deep and accurate, and shadow detail is properly rendered in places where you're supposed to see it. Minutia of hair, faces, costumes and the rusting Pittsburgh cityscape are readily discernible. Lyne and Peterman carefully designed Flashdance for visual contrast between the muted everyday world and the garishly "hyper-real" stage show at Mawby's, with its intense colors and bright lights. This contrasts with soft image was faithfully brought out with this encode, thanks to restraint in excessive artificial sharpening and noise reduction. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Flashdance arrives on blu ray with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio lossless track. The chief beneficiary of the lossless multi-channel treatment is the historic soundtrack.
