I won't go into how the film seems to drift from one sub-plot to another. Or if there even is a plot beyond that
of watching Richard Pryor run aimlessly through three roles. I will say, however, that this DiscoVision transfer
is below the normal standards for DiscoVision. The image contains too much contrast, causing the fine actors and
actress to become lost in their surroundings. The audio is typical DiscoVision as well, vacant of most of the high
end. Further, the transfer folks were asleep during the editing as the first two side breaks fall in the middle
of a scene.
At one point, I actually thought Clint Eastwood was featured in more DiscoVision releases than any other
actor. Truth is Richard Pryor holds that record, appearing in no fewer than seven features to Mr.
Eastwood's showing of only three.
Which Way is Up? was never reissued on LaserDisc.
