Just a warning to intending purchasers that the R2 UK release of Schlesinger's 'Far From The Madding Crowd' is to be avoided. The opening credits are shown in the correct 2.35 ratio, but the rest of the film is then in a compromised 1.85 ratio. My copy has gone straight back to the retailer for a refund. Why Warners would want to do this is beyond understanding, but it's just another example of the contempt that some of the major studios have for DVD users in the UK. I guess we'll just have to wait for this film to be given a proper DVD treatment in R1, whenever that might be.
