Includes audio commentary track with director Keith Gordon and writer Robert Weide, a second commentary with star Nick Nolte, eight deleted scenes, an interview with author Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. and Nolte, a newsreel on the Eichmann trial, historical biographies, cast and crew biographies and the theatrical trailer.
Mother Night is an ambitious thriller adapted from Kurt Vonnegut
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits generally pleasing image quality. The black-and-white scenes exhibit a good gray scale, with pleasing contrast. Color fidelity is nicely rendered, exhibiting full saturation and deep blacks. Colors are a little on the exaggerated side. While images are sharp and detailed, the picture can seem a bit "digital" at times. This stylized picture is nicely rendered throughout, with some pixelization and edge enhancement apparent.
Reason #62 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only place to go for no-nonsense evaluations of the audio and video qualities of a DVD before you drop your hard-earned cash for it. In an industry where the subjective is usually described in the most arcane manner possible (to the exclusion of the unwashed masses), WSR's clear and objective-as-you-can-get reviews give me the information I need to make purchasing decisions confidently.
