Based on Garde a Vue by Claude Miller, Jean Herman and Michel Audiard, and the novel Brainwash by John Wainwright, Under Suspicion stars Morgan Freeman as Puerto Rican Police Captain Victor Benezet who is investigating the murders of two young girls. Henry Hearst (Hackman) is a prominent attorney who has witnessed one of the crimes. However, upon his questioning at police headquarters, Benezet comes to suspect that Hearst may not have simply been a witness to the crimes. (Laurie Sevano)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits pleasing image quality, with rich and warm hues, balanced fleshtones, and deep blacks. Stylized overtones are occasionally used. Contrast and shadow detail are naturally rendered. Occasional source element artifacts are noticed, as well as a slight amount of grain. Edge enhancement is apparent. The picture has a rough, grimy look that seems a bit harsh at times, with minor pixelization. Other scenes are slightly hazy, but contribute to the mysterious look of the film. (Suzanne Hodges)

Thank you all at WSR for a job well done, and continue to teach the way you have since the beginning.
