    All the stars are for Ray Charles’s music numbers, the rest of the movie is … bland

    The Diamond scene is every bit as good as everybody says.

    The story is a bit too loose for my taste. Lots of good things, but the story lags here and there.

    The performances are top.

    The cinematography is wonderful.

    I liked the film, but the director has taken giant leaps to get to Portrait of a lady on fire.

    A major upgrade from the old blu-ray to the Arrow released 4K UHD. The colors pop like they did in the cinema. Tons of interesting extras (new and old).

    Not dated at all. This is a crime classic, love it.

    The best I've seen in a long long time, and Mr. Cage should get his second Oscar now. This was really good.
