Miramax Home Entertainment
Rated R for sexuality, some violence and language.
While the previously released DVD (Issue 28) was not anamorphic, this new 1.85:1 DVD is anamorphically enhanced. The picture is much sharper with a color palette that is better saturated and more naturally delineated than the previous DVD. Viewed alone, the picture is sharp with nicely rendered textures, though sometimes the picture has a soft appearance. The color palette utilizes lots of browns and golds, but other hues and fleshtones are well balanced. The source element is revealing of some dirt and film grain, but nothing that can be considered excessive. Overall, the visual quality is excellent with stunning cinematography by Oscar
I trust it, and more importantly it is a trust, which has been earned. Reading Widescreen Review is still the best way for me to keep abreast of new products and emerging technologies, and it has heightened my senses and enhanced my appreciation of my own home theatre. Thanks to Widescreen Review, I have been able to make informed purchases, improve the performance of my equipment, and keep it looking and sounding its best. Reading Widescreen Review has changed my life for the better. Were it not for Widescreen Review introducing me to filming techniques; video transferring, production and playback; widescreen TV technologies; and audio production and playback, I probably would not have gone on to study these technologies to the degree that I have.
