  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Nominated for an Academy Award

DVD Picture:
With well-captured details, the anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD can look good. Colors are well saturated, although they do look slightly dated, and contrast seems to be slightly low. Black levels are not incredibly deep, but details in the shadows are easy to see. Edge enhancement is noticeable, and the source element is very dirty, with noticeable specks of dirt throughout.
