The Hunchback of Notre Dame
23 March 2014
Conclusion: Flicker Alley brings 1923's Hunchback of Notre Dame to Blu-ray with much love, passion, and lots of valuable bonus features. It's a platter I'd like to recommend wholeheartedly, but have to confess that the movie interested me far more as a showcase for early Hollywood epic ambition than for its retelling of Victor Hugo's story. If you can accept that and adjust your expectations accordingly, you should find much to admire about this strong release.
Summary: Disney is keenly aware of the appeal and reach of its catalog, down to the best and worst films under the Mouse House banner. Titles like Cinderella and Peter Pan arrive separately and to great fanfare, while other titles shuffle onto shelves en masse, sans the red-carpet treatment afforded their Platinum and Diamond Edition brethren.
Excerpt: ”Creep Quasimodo / Yeah, I am a likely target / sure I'll play the part / born with the face of an old De Soto / If misery loves...more / then why am I crying alone? / I'd make a better bore / if there were someone to practice it on.” (”I need somebody” - Chagall Guevara, 1991) - Min herre borde bada oftare. - Hur ofta då? - Två gånger om året, minst. Sent franskt 1400-tal. Medeltiden, den så legendariskt mörka, sägs vara ”slut” och upplysningen är på väg in.
