The Front Reviews

Wes Greene
Slant Magazine

The rich and deceptively radical The Front is given a justly rewarding transfer from Twilight Time, proving the film's deft handling of tone can be even more engrossing.

Columbia TriStar Home Video's DVD delivers The Front in both full-frame and its original 1.85:1 (anamorphic). The 'film-like' print is clean and well defined, and the transfer is flawless.

Forget Bill Murray and Jim Carrey. Zero Mostel's brutally moving performance in The Front shows you what a real "clown who cried" performance is made of.
