Electra Glide in Blue Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
4 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Not to wallow too much in irony, but there's no accounting for some critics' tastes. This film was lambasted upon its release, but I have to say I was more struck by it watching it again on Blu-ray than I initially was when I first saw it in a so-called Art House probably back in the 1980s. This is one of the more tightly controlled directorial debuts that I personally can remember, even if the disturbing final moments seem tonally at odds with the rest of the film.

  • Conclusion: In a way, the film echoes Andrew Dominik's 'Killing Them Softly,' another film rich in societal subtext that may have been too contemporary to be fully appreciated, and garnered an initially lukewarm reception from critics and audiences. While only time will tell whether or not Dominik's show-me-the-money gangster-flick becomes a talking point 40 years down the road, one can certainly see similarities in how 'Electra Glide in Blue' has been rediscovered over the past...

  • Summary: ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE is one of the great unsung classics of 70's cinema. Beautifully shot and acted and with a terrific script that often avoids the obvious it deserves a wider audience. Highly recommended.

  • Conclusion: Unfairly misjudged and ignored at the time of release, this certainly has that 70s flavour but the themes and sincerity have not dated.

DVD and Blue-ray film reviews: From Fargo to Goldfinger

The Independent

  • Excerpt: “I can’t spend everyday on a motorcycle out there in the desert getting heatstroke,” maintains Robert Blake’s cop on a bike in James William Guercio’s cult black comedy from 1973. Longing to work in homicide, he gets a chance when he stumbles on a suspicious suicide. He accompanies a racist detective and it all ends badly, as things often did in the 1970s.
