An underrated classic gets the remixed by Jorge treatment and is a thrilling ride worth taking.
I always enjoyed the original but this edit really ratchets up the tension and the new aspect ratio provides a more claustrophobic experience which adds to the excitement.
I agree w/ joebshmoe that even more could have probably been cut but what is here works just fine.
The only major omission I noticed was the “cafe rest stop” scene which I enjoyed in the original but its removal doesnt harm the edit and works well to keep the film moving at a faster pace. overall a great job by a great editor.
Entertainment 8/10 I loved it but it doesnt replace my original, rather gives a newer, faster more modern cinema experience.
Editing 10/10 as always, flawless
Video quality 7/10 looked good but this is an older film and the source isnt very crisp. No fault of Jorge but this film could benefit from a new transfer
Audio quality 8/10 sounded great but could benefit from a remaster.
you know what? i completely enjoyed this edit. tight pacing, disturbing, SCARY. an absolute nightmare. none of the removed scenes are missed, and frankly… this could have been cut even more. i think this is a perfect source for a much shorter ~30 minute edit.
cropping to widescreen really opens this movie up and gives you a perfect cinematic experience. i never thought i was missing any of the action by essentially seeing half of the movie screen. great idea. and drastic cropping (to 2.35:1 rather than just 1.85:1 or something) is probably the best choice here.
I just finished watching this… and it is just great! It looks like it was shot in widescreen and all the scenes that were taken out are not missed. I liked the beginning and end credits, they really fitted well, I also did not spot any flaws at all. THIS is the DUEL I will watch again.
This one had so much Hitchcock horror in it.
Congratulations and thank you for letting me have such a thrilling hour.
