Overview

Like the Criterion Collection's disc for The Fireman's Ball, Milos Forman's Loves of a Blonde is one of the great Czech films from the 1960s. Delightful, funny, satirical, melancholic, and wonderfully subversive, Forman managed to create his own contribution to New Wave cinema. The film became a success overseas, garnering the director a career that stretched beyond the iron curtain, eventually leading to his move to his permanent move to the States. The disc is great, offering up the film in a new digitally remastered transfer. The full-screen picture (1.33:1) is excellent, as is the Czech language mono soundtrack. Optional English subtitles are also available. The disc also contains an informative and very nice video interview with Forman, as well as a deleted scene. Liner notes from film critic Dave Kehr have also been included.
