I make no secret when I say Jaws is my favorite film of all time. Needless to say, I was extremely excited when I learned it would be screened at this year's Milwaukee Film Festival. The giddy excitement built up and, when the curtains rose, I discovered it was an original 35mm print of the film. Not a restored, digital version but the very same print audience's first saw when Jaws was unleashed on the world in 1975. Do I need to review the film again? No, I think I've gushed enough over the years. This was the first time I caught it on the big screen and, what an effect that screen had. All the nuances missed on tiny TV's were loud and clear on that silver screen. What a joy to be among an audience that held folks new to the Jaws phenomenon. The squeals when old Ben Gardner's head bobbed out of the hole of his half sunk ship to the gasps of Quint's Horrific demise, it was awesome. This is another reason to see a film like this with a group in a theater. What an experience. Jaws remains my favorite film of ALL time, for good reason.
