    "Shampoo" is one of my all-time top ten favourite movies. In 1975, I saw it several times in the theatre, and this Blu-Ray finally looks like I remember it looking. No home video version until now has given me that, and I'm including the Criterion laserdisc, the Columbia DVD, and a recent HD version on one of the movie channels. The classic opening scene finally works the way it's supposed to! I only mind a little that the extras are very sparse, because Criterion got "Shampoo" right.

    The only misstep I'm seeing here is that it wasn't released with "Hair";
    but, then again, I've become conditioned to things like that.
    Long awaited. And perfection, no less. Thanks Criterion.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    No Question here - I knew seconds into Criterion's new disc that we were in for a treat. I couldn't be happier that Criterion got a hold of Shampoo - just as excellent and hard to watch as the first time I saw it. Essential.

    I seem to recall that when I watched this film on TV years ago that the music soundtrack seemed different than the original theatrical release. Am I mistaken? Is the music on the new Criterion release the same as the theatrical version?

    Likewise, David. It was my favorite movie of 1975. Should have won the Oscar!
