Special features include commentary by Director Robert Redford, the 21-minute The Making Of Lions For Lambs featurette, a seven-minute video clip scrapbook UA Legacy, two theatrical trailers for this film, and previews.
Lions For Lambs is a poignant, layered tale of intersecting lives, weaving together the stories of an idealistic professor, an ambitious senator, and a probing television reporter. Professor Stephen Malley
The anamorphically enhanced 2.36:1 DVD shows a solid-looking image, with deep blacks and well-delineated shadows. Contrast is nicely balanced, but whites bloom. The picture has a good sense of depth. Resolution is generally good, but there are times when the picture looks somewhat smeared. Fleshtones look relatively natural, but there are times when faces look splotchy, with unnatural orange highlights. Edge enhancement is not noticeable, and when combined with the clean print and relatively high average video bit rate, the picture looks solid. (Danny Richelieu)
Since Issue 5 (my first), I focused on reviews of Laser Discs and now DVDs, and From The Editor's Couch. Also, WSR has a lot of punch in the new equipment features. The technical essays have been superb! My home theatre setup depended (and still depends) on knowledge gained from WSR. WSR has become the media reference for me with regard to picture and sound quality assurance in display equipment and widescreen entertainment (movies, music events, and documentaries). I still do not have Issues 1 through 4 or the Premiere Special Edition of WSR and hope you put them on the subscribers' site eventually, so that I can giggle at some of the early typos and slips (if you leave them in). However, I'm sure that the early editions make for interesting historical reading as well, because I believe WSR has moved the display industry forward through the pushing the envelope attitude of Gary Reber. Carry on.
