The title doesn't really get my point across. Just re-watched Heat the other night, and there are a few shots that look, well, squeezed from side to side. Kind of the way a 16:9 enhanced DVD would look played on a 4:3 monitor - everybody looked skinny (but not nearly as skinny as 16:9 in 4:3 frame). It was subtle, but noticable. Here's the weird part: the aspect ratio DIDN'T change. The top and bottom of the frame (ie: where the black bars begin) stayed in the same place on my television. It was consistently 2.35:1, or 2.20:1, or whichever is truly accurate for this pic, I'm not sure. Anybody hear about this before? Is it possible that they re-framed some shots to retain composition? Is that even possible? Is this a side-effect of the filming process? Could this be what Mann intended? Sorry I can't remeber the specific scenes. I'll check it out again and post if anybody's interested enough to check this out for themselves. I'm kind of hoping this is a known problem. My setup is as follows: Pioneer 525 DVDP, outputting 16:9 information, Connected by Ultralink S-Video cables, to Loewe 32" Calida (4:3 AR) with auto 16:9 squeeze enabled Video Essentials calibrated, Overscan is 3-5% Thanks.
