The Czech Black Wave's great gift to cinema was art-house trappings and themes mixed with baudy and dark humour, and Milos Forman, the movement's most famous member, has always been a crowd-pleaser who is willing to push boundaries. So when I finally got Amadeus on Blu-ray years ago, I was disappointed at what a slog it was, from the director of so many favourites of mine, including the brisk yet crushing "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." So I'm really pleased to finally experience the original, Oscar-winning cut of the movie that feels much more like a Forman movie, and speeds by at a raucous, bawdy and hilariously dark pace suitable for its subject. Unsurprisingly, TM2YC has handled the material beautifully and this edit deserves a place on any film lover's shelf, next to your Jiri Menzel or Dusan Makavejev collection.

One would have hoped that such a project was unnecessary but it's nonetheless a superb piece of work: conforming of the source material to the shorter version is seamless with no distractions that would drag somebody out of the narrative, it's a long film but doesn't feel it at all.

Honestly, this is the only way I watch this masterpiece. This was incredible. You see the effort on screen.

At least until the alleged 4k restoration of the theatrical cut that has been teased by Saul Zaentz's son Paul becomes a reality, this is definitely the best way to watch the best cut of one of the best films ever. Kudos to TM2YC, and thanks for making it!

It's hard to imagine anyone doing a better job than this. TM2YC has as advertised, created the HD reconstruction of the Theatrical Cut we've all been needing. Quality is top notch for both audio and video. I'm so glad this version of Amadeus has been preserved for viewers like me who feel the Theatrical Cut is the superior version.

BRAVO
