Milos Forman’s full vision for RAGTIME has finally been realized with the new Paramount Presents Blu-ray of the film, now available on Amazon and everywhere you get discs. This packed two-disc release includes the original theatrical version of the movie as well as Forman’s extended workprint, which the director mourned not seeing the light of day in 1981.
