With a running time of 172 minutes this movie represents a challenge to fit onto one disc, especially given its dark, moody (and somewhat grainy) footage. Unfortunately the transfer hasn't done it any favours. Presented in a 1.85:1 letterbox, the picture quality is a little lacking. Rarely peaking above 4mbits, the images are a little murky with some over saturation and colour problems hinting toward a middle of the road standards conversion. It's not all bad news though; there is little evidence of mpeg nasties in the form of macroblocking or mosquito noise although the odd halo is visible as a result of cranking the edge enhancement a little too high. Given the age of the material (2000), it's certainly disappointing that a little restoration couldn't have taken place and the lack of an anamorphic transfer is pretty unforgivable.
