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)
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform. Of all the magazines and periodicals we receive, I constantly find myself reading WIDESCREEN REVIEW over all the others combined. The articles are well-written, thought-out, and accurate. I also find the Editors Couch and the equipment reviews very useful and informative. Thanks for producing a quality magazine without all the BS you find in most other publications.
