Go for another release
on 11 June 2011
The movie in itself has been praised here by others already, so I don't have to go into details. I really like the flow of the film, the unreal setting with it's mixture of fifties and eighties youth culture and the DOPs ability to paint with light. But this DVD release is not recommended. How can you choose the 4:3 TV master for a DVD release, cropping a substantial amount of the picture? And these people, who don't know anything about artistic values, complain about copyright infringements as an act of disrepect toward the artist? Really?
Go and buy the American release from Universal, it has the right aspect ratio to fully enjoy the camera work. Make it a good day for Walter Hill.
