This Superbit Deluxe DVD offers a second disc of supplements, as did the previously released special edition. While the previous edition included audio commentary, and a Stealing Stones interactive feature; these features are not included on Disc One of the Superbit Version (though Pikey subtitles are still available). The second disc offers the same features and Disc Two on the previous version including the several hidden features (a swearing gunfight, hidden interviews, and a character sequence). Make sure and watch the 25-minute making-of featurette, deleted scenes (with optional audio commentary), three storyboard segments, a video-style still photo gallery, and trailers and TV spots.
DVD General Information
Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment
Rated R for strong violence, language, and some nudity.
It all starts with this huge diamond. And these guys dressed up like Hasidic Jews, led by Franky Four Fingers (Del Toro),
The anamorphically enhanced Superbit DVD (framed at 1.85:1) exhibits slightly sharper edges for a subtly cleaner visual experience when compared to the previously released DVD The stylized colors are desaturated, but perfectly complement the mood of the film. That said, hues are well balanced and nicely resemble the intentions of the filmmakers. The picture is solid, with satisfying sharpness and detail. There is a bit of edge enhancement noticed at times. Fine details shimmer on occasion, but overall this is a pleasantly gritty visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #100 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I primarily read WSR for unbiased information concerning the future of HD DVD. Articles are written in such a way that the average consumer can understand the technology and benefits of HD DVD. It's nice to be able to read articles from purist videophiles/audiophiles who clearly state their opinion on technologies/products with clear, understandable supporting information. When I read WSR, I have no doubt that the information within is complete and accurate. It's a publication I can TRUST!
