The Czech Black Wave's great gift to cinema was art-house trappings and themes mixed with baudy and dark humour, and Milos Forman, the movement's most famous member, has always been a crowd-pleaser who is willing to push boundaries. So when I finally got Amadeus on Blu-ray years ago, I was disappointed at what a slog it was, from the director of so many favourites of mine, including the brisk yet crushing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." So I'm really pleased to finally experience the original, Oscar-winning cut of the movie that feels much more like a Forman movie, and speeds by at a raucous, bawdy and hilariously dark pace suitable for its subject. Unsurprisingly, TM2YC has handled the material beautifully and this edit deserves a place on any film lover's shelf, next to your Jiri Menzel or Dusan Makavejev collection.
