  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Based on the novel by Marc Behm, Eye Of The Beholder stars Ashley Judd as a woman suspected of blackmailing a senior government official. The Eye (McGregor) is the undercover intelligence agent designed to shadow her. What he discovers is a woman far beyone small time blackmailing

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing picture with sharp and detailed images. Colors are rich and nicely balanced, though the picture has an appropriately dark quality to enhance the suspense. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Fine film grain is occasionally revealed. Instances of minor pixelization and edge enhancement are apparent.
