Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Boston Strangler is now available on Blu-ray disc in Europe but if you don't have a region free or unlocked Blu-ray player, this DVD remains a great buy, especially for its low price. Richard Fleisher's use of the fragmented screen aesthetics remains of the most innovative, brilliant and daring ever puts to screen and for any film aficionados, film students, film historians, just because of this, The Boston Strangler is a must see movie. But that’s not all, because Fleisher, with his use of dark and gritty colors obviously inspired the dark urban cinema that would follows in the 70s and early 80s (The Boston Strangler’s creepiness is all over William Lustig’s Maniac if you ask me). The film is divided in two parts: the eluding serial killer’s chase and then his detention and questioning. Both are fascinating. Both are cruel and disheartening. The ending is a punch to the stomach. It is a raw form of American cinema ripped between the old guard of Hollywood’s classicists and the forthcoming New Hollywood. It is a masterpiece.

Sure, this is all about the film, because the supplements on the DVD aren’t particularly impressive: you get trailers, teasers and a short (although very interesting) featurette about the making of the movie. I have no complaints about the image but to tell you the truth, after seeing the Blu-ray, I must say the latter offers the « nec plus ultra » when it comes to the cinematography and the brilliant use of the colours. But no matter what, I have no grievances and I do think the image treatment on the DVD is very good and still respectable.

Do yourself a favour and buy this movie right now.

boy,this was a great movie.the acting by both Henry Fonda and Tony
Curtis was really something.these are two phenomenal actors.Fonda was
terrific as the head of a task force on the 'Strangler' case.his
performance was very sublime and understated but brilliant.Curtis as
ALbert Desalvo gives a powerful,riveting performance.i also liked the
film itself.it was kind of low key,but very atmospheric and
effective.it was made in 1968,only a few years after the
stranglings.the filmmakers have their ideas about the events and their
own take own things.some of it was no doubt fictionalized,and some of
it likely came from what was known about the case at the
time.regardless,in my opinion,this is a very good movie.it's
entertaining and thought provoking.even if it was just entertaining,it
would still be a good movie.but if a movie can be both,that's a
bonus.on top of all that,it was way better than i had hoped or
expected.it's not for everyone,i'm sure,due to the subject matter,and
some people may find it slow.but for me, i have to say "The Boston
Strangler" is a 5/5

I have seen this on tv years ago and it's excellent. I bought this for my sister for Christmas, so haven't watched it yet. I assume it's the same one shown on tv.
