Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz decided one day that his successful career as a medical doctor was completely unfulfilling, and so he decided to give it all up for a simpler life. Doc, being more of a doer than a talker, put his plan for a happy life into action
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD looks like a typical documentary, with a collection of archive footage and new interviews in sharp contrast with each over as far as video fidelity. Resolution is quite good on the newer shots, and the older shots are generally cleaned up well. Fleshtones appear too pink, though, and compression artifacts can be recognized. Black levels are relatively high, but shadow detail is adequate. Contrast is balanced well and colors are saturated nicely. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #115 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review as my premiere source for the latest in home theatre technology. The articles are extra detailed and packed with detailed information. My theory is the higher level of detail you try to absorb, the more you will actually retain down the road. Kind of like college, where the things you learned in the first two years are engrained because you used the principles over and over again in your last two years
