Though not noted on the DVD jacket, the black-and-white 2.35:1 picture is anamorphically enhanced. Images can be quite sharp, but the overall appearance is smeared with soft edges. The gray scale is quite good, exhibiting gradations with bright whites and deep blacks. Some of the darker scenes center at newspaper gray. Source element artifacts are occasional, but the picture is quite solid with minimally noticed film grain. Aliasing problems are noticed on occasion, and fine details shimmer at times.

Reason #108 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I have been reading WSR for about two years now and especially enjoy the product review section. Although the other articles and review sections are generally well-written and informative, the product reviews give me an unbiased look at new technologies and products. Being in the home theatre design field, I look at many different sources for product ups and downs and find your magazine a very valuable resource in this area. Keep up the great work!!
