The Reviews for The Executioner's Song (1982) 720p

Director's Cut is a Rip-OffReviewed bytom-456Vote: 7/10

A DVD that is represented as a director's cut should be exactly that. This DVD is not a director's cut. I remember watching this movie when it first aired on TV. There was one scene in particularly where despite the dim lighting, you could tell that Rosanna was partially nude. In this DVD, it is obvious that they have censored this scene by covering her up with dark blotches. It is the strangest sort of censoring that I've ever seen. They tried to make it look like she is wearing some sort of leotard, but it is obviously faked because it jumps around all over the place from one frame to the next, and anyone who saw this when it originally aired on TV will probably recall that Rosanna was not wearing any sort of leotard in this scene.

I bought the "Director's Cut" because that was what I wanted. This amounts to false advertising. It is unethical, and it should not even be legal to do this. I hate when I buy a DVD and find this sort of thing. I encourage everyone to boycott this DVD.

Gary Gilmore was a creepReviewed byfargotennisVote: 8/10

I was in Utah when they filmed this movie. I remember seeing the flurry of video trucks situated around the filming sites. More than once I was accidentally captured in some of the scenes but, of course, they were cut from the final draft. I thought Tommy Lee Jones did an excellent job acting. It was really brilliant. In fact all the actors were great. I happen to know that neither of the widows got any money from the making of this movie. Norman Mailer's excuse: the movie did not make enough money at the box office here is North America or in Europe. nor on video sales. Maybe so. Mr. Mailer did not show that he was too concerned, though. I knew Ben Bushnell and especially his wife, Debbie. Before she met Ben, she use to send me Green pancakes on my LDS mission in Minnesota (personal joke). We were friends from the LDS Institute of Religion across from Pasadena City College for years. Ben was a 6'5" gentle Ben. He was one of the "good guys" and showed great dedication to his God, family, and church. The funeral in South Pasadena was closed casket for a reason. Debbie didn't notice me at the funeral. She didn't notice anyone there. She was still in great shock. She didn't show any emotions until I approached her at the graveside services. She looked at me and then broke down sobbing. It was too much for me, also. Debbie is a courageous survivor and mother. Gary Gilmore was a low-life who did care who he killed & did not deserve recognition.

Jones, Arquette Play Interesting-But-Sick 'Characters'Reviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 8/10

For a long "television film," I thought this story moved along well, even with the main characters being so sleazy the story gets a little unappealing at times. Of course, when has Rosanna Arquette ever played anything else in her younger days? Also, when did she not show off her big breasts? However, I usually find her playing interesting characters and she looked young and pretty in this early career (for her) TV-movie.

As for Tommy Lee Jones, who plays the main character "Gary Gilmore," I've always found him interesting, too. In this, Jones plays the famous real-life killer while Arquette is "Nicole Baker," his teenage girlfriend. Jones does a nice job showing how mentally messed up Gilmore was back then.

I surprised at the language in here for a television movie, but then again, I saw the "European version" of this movie. The longer American version, I assume, cut out some that language and perhaps some of Arquette's "skin."

I rarely comment about anybody else's review but I recommend reading the comments by "noelani" here since this woman lived in Gilmore's backyard, so to speak, during this period and has some interesting things to say.
