A lean and delicious tale from a Stephen King story, Thinner takes special delight in
reducing its star Robert Burke to a bag of bones. After an accident involving a gypsy visiting his
small New England town, lawyer Billy Halleck finds his life takes a dramatic, horrifying and
Incredulous losses. ©Republic Home Video
Burke, a Hal Hartley
regular, carries his varied make-up well and does an excellent job of giving his character a center
of believability. Joe Mantegna provides good support as a Mafioso client.
Thinner is presented as a special edition DVD, providing an
excellent second audio commentary from director Tom Holland and Mantegna and a documentary focused
on the extensive make-up used in the film. Presented in 1.85 aspect ratio only, the widescreen DVD
is quite stunning. THX certified sound adds to the power of the presentation.
