  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Celebrating its 25th anniversary and arriving on DVD for the first time, Reds is Warren Beatty

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture is cleaned up very well, with little in the way of source element artifacts and well-rendered colors and detail. Blacks are deep, and shadow delineation is good. Fine details can be lost at times, whites can be slightly bloomy, and some edge enhancement can be noticed, although it is a good picture.
