The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a soft, hazy picture throughout (perhaps to enhance the dreamy story and the foggy Irish countryside?). Colors can be vibrant, with natural fleshtones and endless blacks, but sometimes appear a bit exaggerated. Edge enhancement is noticed throughout, but pixelization does not distract. Minor artifacts are apparent, but overall the visuals of Haskell Wexler's cinematography are quite intriguing.
Reason #13 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the DVD reviews, the equipment reviews, and the informative articles in each issue. It is the only home theatre magazine that I subscribe to, and I impatiently wait for the delivery of each issue.
