I have slowly, steadily been building up my DVD connection. I don't exactly have a lot of free cash, but I buy DVDs I like when I can. Recently I ordered Trees Lounge and Little Odessa online. (Both are excellent films if you haven't seen them.) I was excited to watch them again when my DVDs arrived, so it was with great shock that I saw the words "Full Screen Version" listed under "Special Features" on both DVDS. Since when is cropping a film considered a "Special Feature?" Granted, I should have checked more closely before ordering the films, but for Trees Lounge, the box shown on the website (deepdiscountdvd) is for the WIDESCREEN version, so I thought that was what I was getting. Adding insult to injury, the Trees Lounge DVD says on the back "formatted from its original version to fit your screen," and then under that, it claims "presented in the original 1.33:1 format in which the film was shot." It may have been SHOT that way, but was it DISPLAYED that way? If it was, then why is there a widescreen version? Both of these releases are by Artisan. I had no opinion of Artisan before, but after checking this website I see they have a poor reputation. Well, count me as another Artisan hater. I will never buy under their label again.
