I've been meaning to ask about the Stagefright DVD. When I used to watch the VHS (put out by Imperial Entertainment) I was amazed by the film's style arising out of the combination of visuals and Simon Boswell's wonderful score. When I watched the DVD, however, I thought that the film had somehow lost its power. After some comparison between the two, I've come to the conclusion that the power of the audio track was somhow lost in the mixing (the example that comes to mind is the aftermath of the killing of the actress on stage. In the VHS track, the music overpowered the dialogue, which, in combination with the lighting effects, engendered a surreal piece of cinema. In the Anchor Bay version, the music seems to be somehow downplayed in favor of the dialogue, which subsequently takes away from the power of the scene). Am I imagining things here or has somebody else noticed this? As for the Kubric films, I think that you should try rewatching them. I caught Eyes Wide Shut on HBO and found it to be very hypnotic (you have to love the use of Ligeti and Liszt's Grey Clouds in the soundtrack). As for the The Shining, it is one of my favorite horror films of all time. You definitely need to give these another viewing.
