This Superbit Deluxe DVD offers a second disc of supplements, as did the previously released special edition. While the previous edition included audio commentary, and a Stealing Stones interactive feature; these features are not included on Disc One of the Superbit Version (though Pikey subtitles are still available). The second disc offers the same features and Disc Two on the previous version including the several hidden features (a swearing gunfight, hidden interviews, and a character sequence). Make sure and watch the 25-minute making-of featurette, deleted scenes (with optional audio commentary), three storyboard segments, a video-style still photo gallery, and trailers and TV spots.
DVD General Information
Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment
Rated R for strong violence, language, and some nudity.
It all starts with this huge diamond. And these guys dressed up like Hasidic Jews, led by Franky Four Fingers (Del Toro),
The anamorphically enhanced Superbit DVD (framed at 1.85:1) exhibits slightly sharper edges for a subtly cleaner visual experience when compared to the previously released DVD The stylized colors are desaturated, but perfectly complement the mood of the film. That said, hues are well balanced and nicely resemble the intentions of the filmmakers. The picture is solid, with satisfying sharpness and detail. There is a bit of edge enhancement noticed at times. Fine details shimmer on occasion, but overall this is a pleasantly gritty visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #83 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because itís simply one of the most intelligent sources of A/V information, both in terms of format and content. Product reviews are honest and thorough. I humbly admit that for the last two years I have been borrowing my brother-in-laws' copies of WSR when he was finished reading them. I am now happy to report that as of last week, I am an official subscriber of WSR and will be for many years to come. I have not been in the Custom A/V industry very long (two years), but I have spent the last 12 years in the computer and networking world, and I know thoughtful, well-sourced copy when I read it. I have come to trust WSR's reviews as a benchmark from which I form many opinions. The hard work of each reviewer makes each of us who reads it a much more credible source of information for our clients. A mentor of mine once told me that no one person has all the answers. The trick is knowing who you should listen to, and WSR has proved itself worthy month after month.
