BRAVO MOZART!

I watched this a while back and had another spin this weekend.

I was mesmerized by this in cinemas, and as much as I like the Director's Cut, which are usually an improvement, in this case (with one or two exceptions), the experience is actually diluted IMHO. So BRAVO for going to the effort of assembling this.

This is a seamless piece of work, and unless you know what you are looking for, unnoticeable. No deductions for the opening caption (which is near perfect) since there is little one can do to eliminate registration flicker of the source material (I know, I recently had the same issue on one of my edits).

There is mastery to the flow and pacing of the theatrical cut which (apart from the DVD release) would have been lost were it not for this edit. Superb audio, and great fram for frame matching all round.

I do like the Directors Cut, but if you are going to get a family member through this, you have to Theatrical.

Thank you for this gift.

Amadeus is one of my all-time favorite films, and to me, is director Milos Forman's masterpiece. Everything from the fantastic performances (especially from Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham) to Forman and writer Peter Shaffer's masterful mix of comedy and drama to Miroslav Ondříček's lush widescreen cinematography, everything works perfectly. TM2YC has done an absolutely phenomenal job reconstructing the superior theatrical version of the film, which is by far the definitive cut. Their audio and visual editing and quality are nothing short of flawless. Amadeus as a film is much like one of Mozart's operas: it's perfect the way it is, and you lose that sense of perfection when you try taking away from it or adding more to it. Historical accuracy be damned, this is a truly great film, and TM2YC's work here is equally great.
