    I think this title was supposed to be available a week ago but it's not yet here in Montreal and at theCNL. Is it in the USA ? And did someone wrote a review somewhere ?

    The offical site said on the 20th: "Devotional is out today (tomorrow in U.S., and slightly later in other territories)". You can find a review on www . depeche-mode . com.

    Does anybody know if the R2 version suffers from PAL speedup or if they fixed that in telecine?

    I agree... I remember talking to Anton Corbijin about this concert DVD a few years ago, and he said it's coming...

    I worked at a movie theater with the guy (Philip Smoot) who did the projections on this tour- his name is in the end credits (on the laserdisc at least, haven't seen the DVD). He was a strange old guy, he offed himself later on [​IMG]

    I found other infos and it seems that it is widescreen (don't know the exact ratio) but it's not anamorphic... And since I'm watching my dvds on a 96 inches screen, well I don't know. I'll probably end up buying this dvd anyway. I saw DM 5 times and bought at least 3 t-shirts. So that is a lot cheaper that the rest.

    It's true it's not anamorphic but it still looks pretty good. Here's the thread from the music area if you're interested...

    Met Corbijin at the June 2001 DM concert in Ottawa... one of the occasions where I congratulated myself for buying a MD recorder [​IMG]

    Now, Devotional is not the best DM concert, it was filmed during Dave Gahan's peak of drug addiction, and the band was falling apart. I'd love to see a full, uncut "Live in Hamburg" DVD, since that was much more powerful. But hey! at least DM is coming to DVD little by little, and I hope the "Strange" movies would follow suit ASAP.
