Format: DVD
This movie is about a man, actually very good looking, who is obsessed with collecting beautiful things, mainly butterflys. If you thing of a butterfly it is fragile, feminine and colorful. The character played by stamp begins to transfer his need to collect butterflys to women. He has become obsessed with one woman in particular and sets about devising a plan to capture her. It is sad in that he does not know how to relate to people, and I think turns inward, using his collection to fill his lonliness and isolation. She becomes his link to happiness, unfortunately all she does is intensify his abandonment issues. He wants her to feel the same way as he does for her. She wants to escape and trys to control him so she doesn't have to feel her fear. He allows the control trying to please her so he can make her fall in love with him, up to a point, he will not let her go. Stamp's character cannot push past his id to allow a real relationship to happen it has to be in the confines of his collecting behavior. There is definately a human element to the film, which makes it really worthwhile, its not a slasher horror film, it might look that way, but it is not. In a way, it is a delicate film, sad and somewhat scary as perceived if looking at the girl's point of view. The only thing I didn't like is the common approach Stamp's character took at the end of the film. Otherwise a good film, not something appropriate for children.

"The Collector" falls within the "Psycho" tradition in focusing on the repressed sexual longings of a quietly alienated loner, but it's closer to "Peeping Tom" in portraying the sympathetic side of the killer. This is highlighted, first, by the performances themselves, which are superficially cold but in reality display a great deal of underlying warmth. But it's also underscored by the fact that William Wyler's madman is only an accidental murderer, his intention being only to harbor his object of desire, not murder her (murder, as it happens, being simply the "collateral" result of his own perversity).
"The Collector," in fact, is probably the most humanized portrait of a sociopath ever put on film, and Terence Stamp makes us realize in every scene just how starved for affection he is. Not even "Peeping Tom" rivals it in this respect, since the analytical approach of Michael Powell toward his deranged protagonist, not to mention the peculiar fetishism involved, prevents us from really identifying with him. By contrast, Stamp's character could easily represent any otherwise "normal" human being, who is merely more estranged and sensitive than most.
The DVD transfer of the film is fine, certainly not the best conversion of a sixties film I've seen, but still doing credit to the film. The sound is also superior, and I personally love Maurice Jarre's theme music, particularly the beautifully orchestrated version played during the closing
credits.
One caution, however: this DVD has been edited slightly, and those used to seeing the brief frontal nudity of Ms. Eggar during the "seduction" sequence in the final quarter of the film will search in vain for it here.
