Grifters (Dual Format Edition)
Grifters (Dual Format Edition)
  • Description

    From director Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons) and producer Martin Scorsese, comes The Grifters, a taut thriller in which seduction and betrayal could lead to murder.

    Adapted for the screen by Donald E. Westlake, from a novel by Jim Thompson, The Grifters features a stellar cast, including Anjelica Huston (Crimes and Misdemeanors), John Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank), and Annette Bening (American Beauty).

    When small-time cheat Roy Dillon (Cusack) winds up in hospital following an unsuccessful scam, it sets up a confrontation between his estranged mother Lilly (Huston) and alluring girlfriend Myra (Bening). Both Lilly and Myra are con artists playing the game in a league far above Roy, and always looking for their next victim. As Roy finds himself caught in a complicated web of passion and mistrust, the question is who’s conning who?

    Brand New Extras:

    • Seduction. Betrayal. Murder: The Making of The Grifters: A brand new feature length documentary on the film’s production, including new interviews with director Stephen Frears, cinematographer Oliver Stapleton, editor Mick Audsley, executive producer Barbara De Fina and co-producer Peggy Rajski.
    • Limited edition booklet: Includes ‘Jim Thompson, Noir, and the Popular Front’, an essay on the American author’s societal influences by David Cochran, and ‘Elmer Bernstein: Grit not Grift’, a review of the legendary composer’s career by Charlie Brigden.

Good Package - But Different

Watching this blu-ray is like watching a different version. Not just more clarity but some of the grime and darkness has been washed away. You get to see more - but the grime and darkness were there to create a mood. You pay your money and take your choice. I can see why some people don't like it - but I like the option. The booklet is nice - but not indispensable.
