It is a cold winter evening and a houseman attempts to rouse his master, former glorified Vienese court composer Antonio Salieri. Being unsuccessful knocking, they force Salieri’s bedroom door open and find him on the floor, bleeding from a knife wound to the neck. They carry him to a mental hospital, where his wound is bound up, and a priest comes to see him the next day. The priest attempts to get him to explain why he would try to take his own life and the movie flashes back, with Salieri narrating, to how he met Mozart and became insanely jealous of his talent. Tom Hulce plays Mozart and F. Murray Abraham plays Salieri. Cynthia Nixon, Jeffrey Jones, and Roy Dotrice also co-star.

Amadeus is a work of fiction – not a biography.

From Wikipedia.
Amadeus is a stage play written in 1979 by English author Peter Shaffer, loosely based on the lives of the composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Amadeus was inspired by Mozart and Salieri, a short play by Aleksandr Pushkin and later adapted into an opera of the same name by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Shaffer then adapted the play for a film released in 1984.

Significant use is made of the music of Mozart, Salieri and other composers of the period.

    Gorgeous Director’s Cut transfer. Beware of the Digital Copy, if included., July 12, 2009
    John S. Harris “The Voice of Reason” (Memphis, TN) – (VINE VOICE)

    This review is from: Amadeus: Director’s Cut [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    I’ve purchased every disc release of this movie: the expensive LaserDisc collector’s set, the original DVD release and the subsquent Director’s Cut, and this new Blu-Ray of the Director’s Cut. The Blu-Ray release stands head and shoulders above the rest for picture quality, color, and sound. My only gripe is that the original theatrical cut is not available on Blu-Ray as a separate item or as an alternative viewing option on the Director’s Cut. The theatrical cut is the one that most of us saw first and saw over and over again over the course of some 20 years before the Director’s Cut was released on DVD. The additional footage in the Director’s Cut is interesting but, to me at least, seems intrusive. It interrupts the flow and tempo I am used to. There is also a brief scene of female nudity that seems a bit gratuitous. The scene does, though, lend some weight to a scene later in the film where you see Constanze’s open hostility toward Salieri. Normally I’m not one to complain about a little female flesh being exposed, but I think the film works well enough without it. Other “new” scenes follow pretty much the same description: they are interesting but their necessity is debatable. There is one small addition that I did enjoy, though. Early in the film, during one of the scenes where the elderly Salieri is confessing (?) to the young priest, Salieri is recounting the episode when he first met the young composer Mozart he’d heard about for so many years. He was blown away by his talent but outraged and offended by his peurile behavior. He insisted to the priest that such talent (evident in one composition in particular) could not and should not exist in such a vile and vulgar child. That brilliant composition simply HAD to be an accident! Salieri’s lines are briefly extended in that moment, and it adds a wonderful touch of menace. I can’t understand why it was cut from the original release. The LaserDisc release included a wonderful behind-the-scenes documentary called “The Last Laugh”. So far I haven’t seen it included in any DVD or Blu-Ray release. I’m holding on to my LaserDisc player for precisely that reason. Add that documentary to this Blu-Ray release and you have a slam-dunk 5-star product. Depending on the release version, this Blu-Ray movie may come in book form and include a short bonus CD of some music from the film and a picture booklet. If you bought/buy the version that comes with the bonus Digital Copy of the film (available at some retailers but harder to find online), bear in mind that the Digital Copy is NOT compatible with iTunes and cannot be loaded to your iPod. There is no wording on the package to indicate this. One has to open the Digital Copy booklet to find that out. The Digital Copy booklet looks the same on the outside as the booklet for the Digital Copies of other movies that ARE compatible with iTunes, so a consumer who has purchased iTunes-compatible Digital Copy-included DVDs before could reasonably assume this one would be compatible also. That consumer would be wrong. Nice bait-and-switch, don’t you think? If you got the non-book version of the Blu-Ray, it probably didn’t come with the bonus CD, booklet, or Digital Copy.

    I’m in agreement with many others who have reviewed the Director’s Cut – the added footage ruins the flow of the movie and coherence of the characters. I love the theatrical release of this movie, and I’m very disappointed that they chose not to include the theatrical release in this blu-ray set. Amadeus is a gorgeous film, and I would very much like to enjoy the original in hi-def splendor. As of now it’s a choice between watching a pretty movie and a good movie. I’ll be watching my old DVD theatrical version until they release it on Blu-Ray. Watching the blu-ray directors cut equates to wasting 3 hours getting mad about what they did to an excellent movie.

Automakers in U.S. driving banks from buoyant new car market

NEW YORK (Frankfurt: HX6.F - news) /DETROIT, June 16 (Reuters) - U.S. banks looking to get in on a booming market for financing new-car sales have run into a formidable competitor: the auto manufacturers themselves. Financing arms of car companies, including Toyota Motor (Frankfurt: TOM.F - news) Corp, Honda Motor Co and Ford Motor Co (NYSE: F - news) , made half of all new U.S. car loans in the first quarter, up from 37 percent a year earlier and the largest percentage of the market in four years, according to credit data firm Experian (Other OTC: EXPGF - news) . US Bancorp (Frankfurt: UB5.F - news) , for example, for the first time ever decided to start financing used cars, an area of the market that the automakers' finance companies have little interest in. Wells sees this as a way to gain more of the used car loan business at GM (NYSE: GM - news) dealerships.
