    Reviewer: Sean Kelly

    This was an interresting disc for me to review especially being acquainted with one of the DVD production crew. First thing I noticed, as the first Single Sided Parallel Dual Layer DVD disc I have tried on my player, was difficulty in accessing the disc. The player failed to read correctly 3 times before properly playing. My second grievance with this disc is a rather lengthy federal warning notice which forces you to wait. No forwarding through it, and no jumping to the menu. This disc has a terriffic language selection with full spoken, subtitle and closed caption on all three English, Spanish, and French which is rather uncommon. The video quality of this production is difficult to rate. The whole of the movie was filmed with modern camera equipment on B/W film with some color "flashback" scenes at one point in the movie. The film itself is of such high clarity that it seems that specs, dirt, scratches, etc were artificially introduced into the production in order to give a better feel of older footage. This makes it difficult to identify film dirt from desired effects. There are scene transitions, however which should be completely black with white text which do not appear to have dirt intentionally added, but where some specs are visible, nonetheless. Overall the image quality is very clear with only minor aliasing and artifacting visible on various scenes.
