4.0 out of 5 stars Almost excellent DVD - except for the wrong aspect ratio, February 5, 2000
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.
