Hi, I just picked up GGR. In common with a lot of people, I've only ever seen this on TV. It looked OK, like your average TV movie, and I was surprised to hear that it was shown theatrically at 2.35:1. I wasn't sure why the director wanted to use such a wide ratio for a film that was mostly based in a cramped office. Then I saw the W/S DVD... All I can is, I am very impressed at the effectiveness of the widescreen composition in this film. It reveals the office with so much clarity (it's much bigger than it looks in the TV version), and it's great being able to see from one side of the room the other. I love the way that the director has framed shots of the key players in the film - using lighting and shallow focus to make them stand out against the drab office interior. And the tracking shots, eg. of Jack Lemmon as he follows Kevin Spacey across the office, work so much better in the scope frame. I know that widescreen Super 35 transfers look much better than the 4:3 versions for SFX-laden films (Terminator 2, Titanic etc.), but this is the first time I've seen what a difference composition makes to a non-SFX film. Anyone else have any good examples of films with really great widescreen compisition? -- J.
