Reviewed by: Andrea MullaneyRead Angus Wolfe Murray's film review of American Cousins
Oh, with these extras they're really not spoiling us. As the film was venerable Scottish actor Russell Hunter's final screen appearance, there's a tribute, which consists of a list of his movies, the text of his obituary as it appeared in The Guardian and some nice comments from the cast and crew about working with him. And aside from the movie's trailer, that's yer lot. You'd think they could have scrabbled together a featurette about Italians in Scotland or some deleted scenes, at least.
The sound mix of this disc isn't up to scratch either - it's muddy and volume-variable at points, leaving some of the dialogue hard to make out. And that's with a native Glaswegian reviewing it; I'd imagine it would be harder still for anyone not attuned to the accent. Poor show.Reviewed on: 27 Aug 2004
