Customer Review

on March 16, 2000
In my previous review, I noted that this DVD features a "pan and scan" version of the film. I have been told that this is incorrect. So that others are not put off by this, please see the comment that I received below:
"The video/DVD release is NOT a pan and scan. In fact, it shows the whole 1:1.37 35mm negative area, and you end up with more picture area than the cinema release (which is a 1:1.85 slice from the centre section of the negative). Kubrick composed for both formats when he shot the movie, and the DVD/video is not compromised in any way. In a sense you get "more picture" with the DVD/video than cinema goers! Basically, Kubrick was careful enough to make sure than both audiences get an uncompromised version - he composed for 1:1.37 AND 1:1.85."
