  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
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

DVD Picture:
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)
