The River (Criterion Collection) back to product details

Simply Breathtaking & Uniquely Refreshing

Absolutely one of the most gorgeous color films ever made, and presented here in a wonderful transfer by Criterion (of course). It's a deceptively simple, languid tale that's completely unconventional, from the drifting storyline with its integration of music(and even dance) to the casting of nonactors in crucial roles. Don't miss the Scorsese interview, which is among the bonus features. It's easy to watch "Kundun" and see how "The River" was a key influence.
