DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD, framed at 2.40:1, exhibits a wild, super-stylized picture that adds a quirky visual twist to the storytelling. Images can be sharp and detailed or soft and slightly fuzzy, with contrast that varies from natural to opposite extremes. The color scheme is almost a character itself, with overtones and stylizations that can almost place you in a specific decade from scene-to-scene. The bright hues can be well balanced or offer bold spot color in a monochromatic, highly contrasted shot. In all, this is a captivating picture that is solid, with only occasional edge enhancement to distract, or minor pixelization to cause the breakup of finer details. (Suzanne Hodges)
