Fine movie, and Hurt at his best. I have a feeling this will flow out of Disney in their next wave of bare-bones Touchstone titles - hopefully in widescreen.

This is one that I first caught in the middle of a Sunday afternoon on tv, and I was drawn right into it. I saw it again on tv a couple of years later and I enjoyed it just as much. William Hurt is at his finest, in one of the last high-profile films I can remember him being the "star of the show." He's had some supporting bits in Hollywood, indie, and foreign films and some leads on cable, but he's not a "top-of-the-marquee actor" anymore. I think a lot of that is by choice, though. And Elizabeth Perkins is a wonderful, under utilized actress who is at her best here. I fear, though, that this is destined to be another bare-bones, full-frame Buena Vista release. Incidentally, another one of those great "catch it on cable" surprises is EYEWITNESS also starring Hurt. I would like to see a DVD of this as well. It's a FOX release and the great cast includes Sigourney Weaver, James Woods, Christopher Plummer, Morgan Freeman, Kenneth McMillan, Pamela Reed, Irene Worth, and Steven Hill ("Law & Order"). Jon

I don't know why the DVD was delayed but it appears it's going to finally be released next week. However I can't find any information if the disc will be widescreen or anamorphic. All the sites I checked didn't have any specific details. Anyone see any reviews for the Doctor or have a copy to comment about?

Thanks Robert. That's encouraging to know it's anamorphic.

Is it even widescreen? I own a copy of the Doctor on laserdisc but so far it doesn't sound like the DVD version is worth purchasing for an upgrade. Thanks for nothing Buena Vista.Posted Image Posted Image

Yes, it's widescreen and the picture isn't too bad.

I've been anticipating this title for some years. Too bad Buena Vista is releasing titles non-anamorphically at this stage of the DVD product lifecycle Posted Image .
