Jonathan Glazer's 2000 Sexy Beast, with Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley is one of those unusual Blu-ray releases.
Two aspect ratios are offered.
Photographed in S35, the film is offered on Blu-ray is both 1.78, as well as its theatrical ratio of 2.35, and the difference can be startling. It's worth viewing a few scenes as a comparison.
My preference was the more horizontally open view at 2.35.
This is another beautiful Blu-ray rendering from Schawn Belston and his team at Fox, and my hat is off to Twilight Time for offering twin ratios.
For those with earlier releases of the film, while the aspect ratios, ie. the numbers may be the same, the content does not appear to be. Comparing the 1.78 with scope, the new scope formatting has additional image at the sides.
Not an extraordinary film, but a huge and epic performance from Sir Ben.
