Product Description

Amazon.ca

Few films have defined a generation as The Graduate did. The alienation, the nonconformity, the intergenerational romance, the blissful Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack--they all served to lob a cultural grenade smack into the middle of 1967 America, ultimately making the film the third most profitable up to that time. Seen from a later perspective, its radical chicness has dimmed a bit, yet it's still a joy to see Dustin Hoffman's bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancroft's deliciously decadent, sardonic Mrs. Robinson. The script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham is still offbeat and dryly funny, and Mike Nichols, who won an Oscar for his direction, has just the right, light touch. --Anne Hurley --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

The Graduate is a great film and I grow to love it more with each viewing. Everything is nearly perfect about it. The script, Mike Nichols' direction, the performances of Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft and Katherine Ross, the music of Simon and Garfunkel. It's funny yet dramatic, moving and profound all at the same time. A very enjoyable film all around. Dustin Hoffman has rarely been better than in The Graduate, although he has certainly given many other fine performances (Midnight Cowboy, Rain Man, Kramer Vs. Kramer). However, even more than those pictures, Hoffman will always be remembered for The Graduate and his portrayal of an awkward young man trying to get a hold on his life.
Also worth noting in particular is the direction of Mike Nichols. He truly gives the film a unique visual style to make it an experience rather than just a comedy/drama. Note the opening credits with Hoffman on an airport moving sidewalk set to the tune of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence". Nichols' uses cuts very interestingly in several scenes such as the scene where Benjamin jumps up on his raft in the pool, and lands in bed with Mrs. Robinson. He also uses zooms to great effect throughout the film. Nichols' Best Director Oscar for this film was well-deserved. I think that Hoffman's performance should have won also, as well as the screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry.
One other thing that I must mention is that The Graduate absolutely must been seen in its original aspect ratio! If you're not watching a widescreen version, then you're not watching The Graduate. The film was shot in the Panavision process with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Mike Nichols makes wonderful use of the 2.35:1 frame, so the film will be absolutely botched in pan and scan.

This review is only on the condition and quality of the item that I purchased, some people don't seem to understand that you're reviewing the product, not the movie itself (though if I was I'd still give it 5 stars) go review the movie on imdb or something where people might actually care about your opinion. This seller did not make the movie so don't give them a bad rating cause you don't like the movie itself. So anyway, I am completely satisfied! Fast shipping (a little over a week) Came in perfect condition. Popped the dvd in right away, perfect, no troubles. Then listened to the soundtrack, also perfect. I loved everything about The Graduate so spending a little extra money for the anniversary edition was worth it imo.

Format: Blu-ray
This BLU-RAY review ONLY applies to the Studio Canal release
(ASIN: B003PHJLSC)

European released BD presumably taken from a different master than MGM's US release Graduate [Blu-ray] [1967] [US Import].
Colors seem more saturated and balanced in my view (see also blubeaver.ca for a comparison of both BDs)
PS: One thing that struck me as odd: Two over-shoulder-shots of Dustin Hoffman riding his Alfa Spider on the Bay Bridge headed for Berkeley (TC 01:36:58 - 37:22) and going down on 101 to Santa Barbara (01:38:37-58) were NOT anamorphic - TV image only looks ok when set to "4:3" - was it like this in theatres?! If so my guess would be that in 1966/67 when this was shot it simply wasn't practical to mount a (Mitchell?) Cinemascope rig to such tiny Italian convertible going at 70mph with the car top down... So maybe they shot this with a normal lens and "stretched" the image to fit widescreen presentation?
Anyone like to comment? Thanks!

The Graduate has become a classic film, one that makes all those `top 100 film' lists. It stars a young Dustin Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, a young man from a wealthy family, who has just graduated from college. He is in limbo, unsure of what to do with his time and where life will lead him. The Robinson's are his parents' best friends and it is their daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross) who Ben's parents have earmarked as a partner for their son. However Mrs Robinson (played by a brilliantly predatory Anne Bancroft) has other plans and is set on seducing the naïve young man. When Elaine returns from college, Ben falls for her and ends his relationship with her mother. Predictably Mrs Robinson reacts with hostility and sets out to ruin both his relationship with her daughter and his life.

Simon and Garfunkle provide the music in their inimitable style and the title song, Mrs Robinson, was a huge hit for them. Director Mike Nichols managed, in this film, to capture the feel and mood of the 60's flawlessly and he deservedly won an Oscar for his work. The DVD itself has few extras, a documentary by the director, interview with Hoffman, some trailers and the usual subtitles. The picture and sound quality are good, what you would expect from the format. This is a film that has stood the test of time and is still worth watching today.
