    I've just read a review of the R2 version of this great film, and it appears that the aspect ratio has been changed to 1.78:1 (from a theatrical ratio of 2.35:1).

    I heard rumours that the R1 DVD is in the correct 2.35:1 format. Please can anyone confirm this before I get onto Amazon?!

    (It seems that 2.35:1 films shot on HDCAM always suffer on R2 DVD. This situation is exactly what happened to 'It's All Gone Pete Tong', and I ended up importing the R1).
