... it's in a DVD case but make no mistakes. It's a VHS tape. I'm not just saying this because it isn't a widescreen presentation. It actually may not have been shot in a widescreen format to begin with. Stanley Kubrick shot the shining in 1.37: 1, and up until it's latest DVD/Blu-ray release it had only been available on home video in it's original negative ratio (fullscreen). No. This is a VHS tape. It was clearly transfered from a VHS tape. It looks just like a VHS tape. It sounds just like a VHS tape. Horrendous video and audio quality. Shame on Lionsgate. After waiting for X amount of years for a DVD edition of Ironweed, what do I get? A second VHS copy in disguise!

If you haven't seen Ironweed, then don't let this shoddy edition stop you. It is definitely worth watching even if you've been spoiled over the last decade or so by the picture/sound quality that 99% of DVD's generally offer. Just know what you're in for with this DVD, quality wise. Rent it, but don't pay money to own it. It's a sham(e).
