  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Fico Fellove (Garcia) is owner of the classiest night club

DVD Picture:
Without any glaring issues, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is good. Shadow delineation is a little spotty at times, and blacks can occasionally look washed out, but detail is good and colors are well saturated. There is noticeable minor edge enhancement and pixilation. Whites are slightly blown-out as well, and some of the brightest whites give an outlining glow. The picture really is not bad though.
