Nice, I am a big fan of the film, but the copies floating around aren't too stellar, I'm curious to see what it will look like!

The original NY Times review.... Interestingly, the reviewer leaves out a very important aspect of the film.

I would have liked this film, had I not read the book the month before. Not only is the movie a sort of cliff notes version of the novel, but it changes the novel's intention. The book is pretty graphic, describing rape with a corn cob, which naturally could not have been filmed back then anyway; but the film makes Temple a sort of a heroine, where in the book she turns out to be almost as bad as the roadhouse gang. The film has some great visuals though, especially Temple in the barn about to be attacked. The lighting is incredible.
