The Razor's Edge [DVD] [1984]

Bill Murray stars in this adaptation of The Razor's Edge, which comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 4.0. English and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials are limited to a theatrical trailer. Columbia/TriStar has added little to this disc to interest those who did not see it during its initial release, but it is solid enough to satisfy those who enjoyed this change of pace from Murray.

The Razor's Edge
In this Bill Murray-driven remake of the 1946 Tyrone Power film, Murray plays the lead, Larry Darrel, a World War I survivor who takes off on a foreign trek to discover the meaning of his life. Apparently Murray said he'd film Ghostbusters only if Columbia would let him do Razor's Edge. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

    contemporary adaptation of classic novel

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    It is a contemporary adaptation of the Somerset Maugham classic novel. There are numerous differences from the novel, but the film is interesting and touches upon philosophical issues in life related to one's choices. After WWI, the main character came back changed, profoundly enough to alter the way he lived the next several years of his life.

    Best Movie Ever!


    Title says it all. Like it! Timeless movie, there was another before it, but I haven't seen it. I like this one. Better than the book (which is rare). About a man...who, after fighting a war, decides to figure out life, and its purpose. This takes the form of a mostly spiritual and intellectual adventure with plenty of humor to boot. I wouldn't EXACTLY call it a drama until around half to three fourths of the way through the film. There is one character in particular called "Uncle Elliot" who is a riot because of his raucus, dry humor. He isn't a major character, but instead more of a "majorly minor" one. His role is still somewhat vital to the film though. It is also Bill Murray's best movie to date, yes, even better than "Groundhog Day". I give this movie 10 blargs out of 10.
