Blonde and beautiful, and with family money, Edie Sedgwick (Miller) made her way into the 1960
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD starts out overly contrasted and incredibly grainy, but quickly switches to a more realistic look. Fleshtones look good and details are captured quite well. Shadow delineation is not as well defined as on the better releases, with detail in the darkness difficult to see. Details often look slightly soft, and edge enhancement is noticeable. Source element artifacts are noticeable from time to time, film grain is heavy, and noise is prevalent, but it would not be surprising to hear that all were intended by the filmmakers, as they match the storytelling well.

Reason #56 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I am most interested in the formats (audio) of DVDs. I buy a DVD, and then it is re-introduced in a deluxe package some time later. I am not that interested in the extras, but the DVD is invariably upgraded in sound. This is usually DTS ES surround but in some cases DTS ES 6.1 (discrete). Most reviews (Home Theater, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Sound And Vision) do not address this situation. I am subscribing to Widescreen Review, hopefully, to solve this problem. I am looking forward to my first issue and a long relationship with your magazine.
