  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:

DVD Picture:
Viewing in a completely blackened room is recommended due to the extremely dark opening sequence and the many dark scenes throughout. The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD is perfectly capable of delivering these visuals with pleasing shadow delineation and contrast. Sharpness and detail is quite satisfying overall. Colors are nicely saturated considering the dim nature of the movie, with satisfying fleshtones and generally deep, bluish blacks. There is quite a bit of foggy grays, and hues can appear somewhat hazy at times, but for apparently thematic reasons. Occasionally, objects appear a bit edgy, and minor pixelization is evident.
