Based on the novel by Edward Bunker, Animal Factory takes us along with young Ron Decker (Furlong) as he gets convicted for selling marijiuana and is sent off to a broken down prison where violence is an everyday occurance. He gets a break when Earl Copen (Dafoe), a veteran convict, shows him the ropes and helps him endure his time by securing him a decent job and seeing that he is not attacked...all while asking nothing in return...other than friendship. Mickey Rourke is even stranger than usual as Jan The Actress. (Laurie Sevano)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits good picture quality throughout. Images are solid, with nicely rendered sharpness and detail. Some scenes appear slightly soft and smeared. Colors are subtle, but well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Some minor edge enhancement is noticed, but there is no distracting pixelization. (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #128 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it gets to the details I'm really interested in knowing. It doesn't beat around the bush. I love the DVD reviews and the insightful articles. Besides insightful, WSR seems to be able to put into print some of the latest breaking news in this ever-changing industry within weeks, if not days, of the original release of the news. And last but not least, I have access to the subscription website.
