When Jeffrey Beaumont (MacLachlan) discovers a severed human ear in the woods just outside his all-American home town, he begins a journey that takes him to the lowest depths of human behavior
The anamorphically enhanced DVD, framed at 2.35:1, exhibits a similar picture to the previously released anamorphically enhanced DVD (Issue 40), but with a slightly softer, more appealing quality. The hard-edged characteristic of the previous DVD is softened. Colors are more refined and balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast and shadow delineation appear more natural. The excessive edge enhancement is virtually eliminated, leaving a smoother, more film-like appearance. On occasion, however, the picture does seem to be a bit smeared. There is considerable pixelization noticed, but the picture is a definite improvement over the previous DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #15 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
This is THE magazine that presents all that I need to have to evaluate and buy equipment, know what’s up in the industry, and which provides a listing of DVD reviews and release schedules. In short, it is an almanac for reference, opinion, and knowledge. I must say that I have read just about every magazine that deals with home theatre that has been published. Widescreen is more professional, more comprehensive, and more up-to-date than the rest. I have read the rest, but I am staying with the best.
