The Shugborough Hall monument has an engraved inscription that has puzzled the best cryptographers for centuries. But now, a man named Louis Buff Parry has discovered the truth behind the code buried within thousands of years of secret societies and inside hidden messages within religious iconography. Award-winning Director Gavin Wince follows the Lapis Exillis around Europe, exploring these secrets and how they affect our everyday lives. (Nate Fowler)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows many of the problems that plague documentaries, with flitting color balance that can deliver natural fleshtones or very pallid fleshtones. Contrast is slightly washed-out, with whites that can bloom. Details are fairly nicely rendered, but limitations in the source element generally lead to a somewhat soft image. Compression artifacts are rare, but edges can appear digitized at times with some stair-stepping and shimmering noticeable. Edge enhancement can also be noticed on higher contrast transitions.

Reason #54 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love WSR because I always seem to find out information on new technology or new products in your magazine first. Sometimes I find out as much as two issues in front of other publications. I also like the fact that you are not scared of technical articles, such as the video calibration article and the Digital Video Essential article, which goes into much depth and does not just skim the surface like many other publications seem to do. I like the articles, and I always skim forward to the end of the mag to read the new DVDs scheduled for release. I enjoy the mag very much! Keep it coming!
