I got an early copy of Miramax's NAQOYQATSI DVD and, much to my dismay, I've discovered that it's been improperly authored. Playing it on my 32" Sony (with my stalwart Sony 550 DVD Player set in 4x3 letterbox mode), I noticed that some of the images looked stretched-- and, it was only until after I put my player in 16x9 mode that it looked normal. It's hard to discern at first with the lack of human figures in the film (most of the first chunk of the film is taken up by abstract images or landscapes), but something is seriously amiss with this; it's as if Miramax took a 1.33 image and stretched it to 1.78:1. I saw the film theatrically and, as far as I can remember last year, it looked fine in 1.85:1. What gives?
