  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Mickey and Mallory (Harrelson & Lewis) are Natural Born Killers

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered, picture that is both color and black-and-white, among other film formats like sequences of animation and video. Some scenes are intentionally gritty and harsh, with film grain and artifacts, while others are sharp, with impressive clarity and definition. Colors are used stylistically throughout, and hues are rich and well balanced. The slightest edge enhancement is noticed, but its presence is infrequent. Compared to the previously reviewed DVD, the anamorphically enhanced version is superior in terms of clarity, definition and color balance. (Suzanne Hodges)
