Almost excellent DVD - except for the wrong aspect ratio,
This review is from: Peeping Tom (The Criterion Collection) (DVD)
When I heard of the Peeping Tom DVD release from Criterion this sounded like the best thing that could happen to this great movie, one of my all-time favorites... Now that I've seen it: The documentary on the disc is excellent, and Criterions work on the image is almost brilliant as always, except for one thing:
Why, oh why Criterion, did you have to mess with the aspect ratio of this film? The original format is the old european widescreen ratio 1:1.66, the (anamorphic) transfer on the DVD now shows a cropped 1:1,78 that doesn't look quite right in some scenes. Please, please, please Criterion, don't do this kind of things again, you did, you can and you should do better.

Yes Criterion deliberately messed it up. & all nudity was cut. WB made a mess out of it.
