U-Turn

( 3 )

Overview

This oddball combination of black comedy and pulp thriller was Oliver Stone's least controversial film in years, and also arguably his worst. Nevertheless, it does have some merit in terms of acting and visuals, and it is therefore disappointing that Columbia/TriStar has put minimal effort into this DVD. The anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film is satisfactory, even if the deliberately faded and washed-out look of the film does not benefit greatly from the process. On the other hand, U-Turn's breezy music ...

Overview

This oddball combination of black comedy and pulp thriller was Oliver Stone's least controversial film in years, and also arguably his worst. Nevertheless, it does have some merit in terms of acting and visuals, and it is therefore disappointing that Columbia/TriStar has put minimal effort into this DVD. The anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film is satisfactory, even if the deliberately faded and washed-out look of the film does not benefit greatly from the process. On the other hand, U-Turn's breezy music and bizarre dialogue have been well cared for with an excellent Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, and the audio quality of this disc is consistently high from beginning to end. Regrettably, the only special feature on the disc is the original theatrical trailer, which is okay but nothing special. Stone normally seems willing to contribute to DVD editions, and his input is missed here. This is only a so-so DVD, but then Columbia TriStar might well regard it as only a so-so movie.

    U Turn good for kids

    I think that movie is good for kids, because what could they do that they saw on the screne, but it would raise their IQ a lot.

    A shocker

    This one will knock you for a loop. It's definitely not for people who like happy endings. It's full of sleazy, despicable people who do nothing but nasty things to each other, and I just love it. You can't help but laugh at the black humor that runs all the way through. Sean Penn is the shining star, but everyone plays their roles wonderfully. Billy Bob Thornton is unrecognizable as the world's slimiest auto mechanic, and Juaquin Phoenix is hilarious as the local spineless bully. The final scene must have been very difficult to shoot. When it ends, all you can do is shake your head and whisper, ''Wow.''
