One from the Heart: Reprise 4K Blu-ray Review

Francis Ford Coppola's 1982 film, "One From The Heart," is a mesmerizing exploration of love, loss, and the intoxicating allure of Las Vegas. Often misunderstood upon its release, the film has become a cult classic, captivating audiences with its unconventional approach to storytelling. This review delves into the film's key elements, examining how the acting, cinematography, direction, and hauntingly beautiful score by Tom Waits interweave to create a visually stunning and emotionally resonant experience.

Once there, the team encounters an unknown being of extraordinary strength and speed, and the ability to control an army of mindless warriors. The trio must fight through the unstoppable hordes to prevent humanity’s demise. This looks to be a thoroughly mindless, low-budget, sci-fi action film that could be a lost Norris joint from the 1980's video store heyday... in other words, I'm all in.
