Phantom Of The Paradise Blu-ray Short Review

5 stars for this beautifully converted rock opera.Phantom cover
Originally released in 1974, Phantom Of The Paradise is written and directed by Brian De Palma  (Scarface, Mission: Impossible) and is a interesting rock fusion of The Phantom Of The Opera, a 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux and The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
Phantom Winslow and PhoenixWhen unknown composer Winslow Leach (William Finley - Eaten Alive, The Black Dahlia) performs his Cantata about Faust for renowned record producer Swan (Paul Williams - Ishtar, The Muppet Movie), little does he realize that Swan wants the piece for himself to use for opening of his new rock club, The Paradise.
Winslow is secretly besotted with Phoenix (Jessica Harper - Suspiria, Minority Report), whom he met at the auditions for the chorus-line to perform his piece and wants recognition for his work.
