Dec’s review published on Letterboxd:
Smile, you son of a bitch!
Saw the re-release in cinemas, it was in 3D and definitely 4K remastered. The 3D was quite immersive and a surprise. This is one of those films that was impossible to make and shouldn’t exist, the film that created the blockbuster. Essentially a two act film, every scene is perfectly blocked, shot and edited. Everything you need to learn about writing and filmmaking is in this masterpiece. Seeing this in the cinema totally enhanced this rewatch, I have this as 3rd in my ranking but it could easily be 1st.
Fun fact: According to director Steven Spielberg, the prop arm looked too fake in the scene where Chrissie's remains are discovered, so instead, they buried a female crew member in the sand with only her arm exposed.
