Special features include six minutes of deleted scenes, a TV spot, photo gallery, previews, and two featurettes: China AIDS Initiative (18 minutes) and the two-version House On Fire (four and nine minutes, respectively).
A young nun (Sevigny) working in an African village. A handsome Montreal man (Ashmore) keeping his career a secret from his financially dependent mother. A determined woman (Liu) who transports life-sustaining blood across China. Three continents. Three individuals. All united by 3 Needles. (Jack Kelley)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits well-saturated colors, but fleshtones can have an unnaturally red tone in bright daytime scenes. Definition is slightly wanting, in that fine textures have a soft appearance. Compression artifacts are noticeable in much of the presentation, making medium and long shots look muddled and smeared.

Reason #84 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Let me tell you a story about a man named Mike. Overwhelmed by components, can't believe marketing claims. And then one day while surfing on the net, up came a page with an interesting claim... Knowledge that is. Reference material. Widescreen Review. Well, the first thing you know old Mike's signed up. Getting monthly coverage and in-depth reviews. He thought Widescreen Review is what we all should read. So now I'm reading Joe Kane and spouting ISF calibration, that is. Image quality. SMPTE bars.
