  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Stemming from an ancient Sufi word meaning

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.20:1 DVD has been fully restored from its original camera negative using an 8K UltraDigital mastering system, and resolution is noticeably improved over the previous DVD release (Issue 60). Compression levels are improved as well, with less artifacts noticeable. Black levels are also improved, and shadow detail is good. Colors show good, natural saturation and contrast is balanced well. Fleshtones look natural as well. Edge enhancement is used, though, but it is fairly inconspicuous. (Danny Richelieu)
