Special features on Disc One include two commentaries: the first with Director Peter Cattaneo and Actor Mark Addy, and the second with Producer Uberto Pasolini; ten deleted scenes with optional Cattaneo and Addy commentary; cast interviews; original publicity campaign, which includes TV spots and theatrical trailers; and a 14-part Music Machine, which highlights some of the music in this DVD. On Disc Two, you will enjoy four featurettes: Development (24 minutes), Production (41 minutes), The Success And Its Aftermath (nine minutes), and A Bigger 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.

Reason #74 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
