New on Disc: 'The Last Detail' and more …

1 Feb, 2016 By: Mike Clark

The Last Detail (Blu-ray)

Available via ScreenArchives.com
Twilight Time, Comedy, $29.95 Blu-ray, ‘R.’
Stars Jack Nicholson, Otis Young, Randy Quaid, Clifton James.

Perhaps befitting director Hal Ashby’s editing room experience, the movie looks and feels patched together, which may have been intentional, though the result plays very well regardless of the filmmaking methodology.
Extras: According to some of Julie Kirgo’s zestiest Twilight Time liner notes, this is Nicholson’s favorite career performance.
