Revolution (Blu-ray+DVD) BFI


Al Pacino heads a stellar British/American cast (Nastassja Kinski, Donald Sutherland, Joan Plowright, Annie Lennox) in Revolution: The Director’s Cut. The definitive version of Hugh Hudson’s (Chariots of Fire, Greystoke) powerfully unsentimental film set during the American War of Independence is a tour-de-force of epic filmmaking.

Single father Tom Dobb (Al Pacino) struggles doggedly against the violent course of history to protect his only son, encountering many obstacles and hardships along the way.

Accompanied by John Corigliano’s poignant score, Hudson’s 1985 film is an uncompromising evocation of the chaos, squalor and upheaval of war which he has re-cut and updated with a new voice over by Pacino.
