Critics reviews

Released at 132 minutes, and trimmed more often than an old dress, Frank Capra’s over-schedule, over-budget, eternally beloved Lost Horizon still holds the spirit of adventure in its latest restoration. The new Blu-ray does full justice to the beauty of Joseph Walker’s cinematograph, especially the revolution that opens the ovie, the vast set for Shangri-La, and the breathtaking sequences of the long march back to grim “civilization.”
