Which is good as the blu-ray, DVD release is coming up on Feb 25, coincidentally that is the same day that Oscar votes have to be in. With the release coming up so quickly, it seemed a good idea to look at this masterpiece with its 10 Oscar nominations and two wins for Best Director – Golden Globes – and Best British Film – BAFTAs.
