I have yet to be impressed by any 2160uhd transfers, and this is no exception. While this “fully remastered” version looks better than any previous version of this classic erotic film, the individual screen grabs still basically make it seem that the film has been upsized from a sharper, smaller version.
Here are a few samples to give you the idea.
Kristel and Jeanne Colletin
Christine Boisson’s iconic scene.
(She pleasures herself to an image of Paul Newman.)
It doesn’t seem possible that this film is now almost 20 years old.
Meg Ryan was in her forties when this was lensed, and it was billed as her big breakthrough to serious dramatic acting, not to mention lower body nudity.
Here are my comments on the film, as well as on the eponymous source novel, which I preferred to the film adaptation.
Meg had done some nudity early in her career, but it was relatively modest, and ended a full decade before In the Cut.
She bared her breasts in the European version of The Presidio (1988). She was in her mid-twenties and looked great, but all we got to see was a shape, in the shadow, from the side.
She flashed her breasts ever so quickly in a sex scene in Flesh and Bone (1993).
And she exposed one lovely breast in The Doors (1991).
That happened back in 2012, and it still echoes to this day. That gallery presents one ginormous bosom.
