Can you believe this film was supposed to star Barbra Streisand? Thank god she refused, for whatever reason ... BUT, wicked Barb left a nasty little surprise behind. She sings the theme song. If you can get over that you are in for a pleasant good time. Enter the glamorous and exciting world of Laura Mars (Faye Dunaway), a successful New Yorker fashion photographer but her pictures are causing scandals - showing violence, murder and explicit nudity. Laura gets her ideas from visions of actual murder scenes, a fact that kind of concerns Detective John Neville (Tommy Lee Jones) who is hot on the case after Laura's friends get brutally killed one by one ... stabbed in the eyes with an ice pick. Her ex-husband Michael (Raul Julia) becomes the prime suspect, but maybe it was her Chauffeur with a criminal past, Tommy (Brad Dourif)? And if that was not enough, Laura can also witness the murders of her friends happening, transmitted via psychic broadcast through the eyes of the killer - in real time ... ---------- Based on John Carpenter's original screenplay, Eyes Of Laura Mars is a nice little piece of work there. A stylish thriller with a supernatural twist and enough suspense to keep one attentive. The pacing might drag a bit here and there and Laura Mars' quarrel with her alcoholic ex-husband is kind of cliche but overall, this is well made stuff. Faye Dunaway is simply excellent in this film. Great & fun cast in general, everybody is doing a fine job. The score is excellent as well - but I blame the year this film was made for the addition of (more or less) cheesy disco tunes that made me snicker. Enough praise already, just buy the damn disc and enjoy. Released by Columbia Tri-Star on DVD a few years ago. Video: Anamorphic 1.78:1 Widescreen (fool screen on side B). Mostly clean print with sharp image. Colors look fine, no complaints here. Audio: 2.0 Mono. It's mono so don't expect much. Extras: Filmographies / Photo Gallery / Visions Featurette (still need to check that one out) / Audio Commentary by director Irvin Kershner. Quite informative commentary but kinda dry. Kershner talks about scenes and what they've meant, praising the actors and has one or two tales to tell about the production etc.
