Weird this is coming out via Anchor Bay. I'm in. Fantastic that the John Huston documentary is a bonus. I've been wanting to see that one for ages.

What's weird about it? Weinstein bought the rights for this and Anchor Bay is their home media distributor.

I'm use to Anchor Bay specializing in horror genre and what not, and not usually associated with the type of film The Master is. that's all. No offense to meant to shareholders like yourself who took it as a slander.

According to High Def Digest, The Master will be presented in a 1.85:1 Aspect Ratio. At least that is what the specification says under the details web page for that title. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Not when I saw it.2.20:1 Also only about 80% of it was shot in 65mm.That probably explains why some parts did't look that good.

I wonder how they managed to show it like that when you saw it. The 70mm prints were pillar boxed to 1.85. http://motion.kodak....sual_Impact.htm

I had been advised before I saw it it that is was 1.85:1. I can only presume that the theatre used a different aperture plate or reframed it with masking.It was certsainly NOT 1.85. Obviously if the frame was masked to that AR it should have been shown that way. If so, it was a wasted opportunity which also summed up my reaction to the film in general.

The 70 showing i went to was 1.85 side masked in the print, your theater showed it wrong. Too bad PTA wont do commentary any more.

I also saw it in 70mm (at the AFI Silver Spring, if that matters), and it was 1.85:1.
