The Shugborough Hall monument has an engraved inscription that has puzzled the best cryptographers for centuries. But now, a man named Louis Buff Parry has discovered the truth behind the code buried within thousands of years of secret societies and inside hidden messages within religious iconography. Award-winning Director Gavin Wince follows the Lapis Exillis around Europe, exploring these secrets and how they affect our everyday lives. (Nate Fowler)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows many of the problems that plague documentaries, with flitting color balance that can deliver natural fleshtones or very pallid fleshtones. Contrast is slightly washed-out, with whites that can bloom. Details are fairly nicely rendered, but limitations in the source element generally lead to a somewhat soft image. Compression artifacts are rare, but edges can appear digitized at times with some stair-stepping and shimmering noticeable. Edge enhancement can also be noticed on higher contrast transitions.
