Overview

James Mangold's festival favorite debut Heavy comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.78:1. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a director's commentary track and a theatrical trailer. This film failed to find a wide audience, but fans of Mangold's later work (Cop Land, Girl, Interrupted) will want to give this fine disc a look, as will Liv Tyler's admirers.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
The gloomy surroundings, somber tone, and languid pace ultimately become wearying, but this romantic drama from writer/director James Mangold hailed the arrival of an interesting, provocative artist to join the mid-'90s wave of talented indie newcomers that also included Todd Solondz, David O. Russell, and Paul Thomas Anderson. Mangold draws powerful performances from his cast, particularly lead Pruitt Taylor Vince, a respected character actor who carries the film on his sad-sack shoulders with varying degrees of palpable fear, pain, and hope. Vince is complemented by the willowy Liv Tyler in one of her first, star-making parts, and especially by the revelatory Debbie Harry as a waitress bruised by life -- promiscuous, envious, and still harboring a flickering scrap of romantic hope. If Mangold can learn to forgo the turgid pacing and overweening sense of doomed portent that hangs like a noxious cloud over this film and his subsequent, underrated Cop Land (1997), he may become one of the finest actor's directors of his cinematic freshman class.
