Great content, shame about the picture quality,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Othello [DVD]  (DVD)
DVD turned up within 24 hours - well done Amazon and Royal Mail.
As with other reviews here, the quality of the acting can't be faulted. So I'll review with from a different perspective...
It is entirely filmed on a set, there are outdoor scenes in the play but they are all filmed in doors, so it feels a little dark and claustrophobic.
Unfortunatley, the picture quality is more like watching a video tape, not what DVD can offer. I know the material is from 1990, but it's not the dark ages. The picture is washed out somewhat, there is fringing on the images and it is a bit grainy at times. Metrodome could have spent some time post-processing the print to bring out more colour and contrast at least.
I'll be interested to compare this DVD with my SVHS recording I made of it at the time - I could probably capture a better quality print!!!
All the negativity out of the way, you'll soon forget these issues once you are engrossed in the content.
