How do we know whether or not a film has been transferred correctly? For example, look at the comparison shots of The Silence of the Lambs on dvdbeaver.com. The MGM release crops some of the left side of the screen (a noticeble chunk.) So, is this correct or is the Criterion? If the Director of Photography supervised both transfers...and I don't want to get into a debate about color correction issues, this is strictly aspect ratio. And now the new Texas Chainsaw crops a bit differently from the last version. I guess I'm not understanding why it is so hard to transfer the entire image to dvd. Why do various versions of films differ so much? I mean, how hard is it to transfer a 1.85:1 film correctly without losing information? And how much cropping is considered ok?
