i've been a fan of this movie since i saw it in the theatres (i actually like it more than rushmore)...but for some reason i hadn't watched it on dvd in a while and didn't realize it was 16:9 and in 5.1....i could have sworn it was a 2.0 non-anamorphic! it was a real pleasant surprise to see just how well this transfer stands up to recent big-budget dvd's. Here's a low budget film that had a dvd release pretty early on, before a lot of kinks with compression/etc. were worked out, and it looks BETTER than most dvd's released nowadays. There is NO noticeable edge enhancement, and the level of fine detail (even in the backgrounds!) far surpasses what i've seen in a lot of new dvd's. why can't all dvd's look like this?
