    A brilliant movie with a wonderful cast (Williams in particular, whose performance spells "Oscar" time after time).
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the colors are beautifully saturated (some of the pictures almost leap out of the screen).
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good. The surrounds are nicely used throughout the movie.
    The menus are still and silent.
    My disc did not contain even a single extra feature. How irritating!
    Bottom line - a wonderful movie with a superb lead. Too bad about the extra-less version I reviewed. Don`t miss this one.

    A Deeply unsettlng film for about 40 minutes, before losing it`s grip. Robin Williams gives a convincing performance, though other elements in the film aren`t so convincing. The DVD is rendered nicely...
