Title Best
Usual Suspects, TheR4

    Funnily enough, for a film of this stature, there are few reliable reviews available of the Region 1 DVD. From what we can gather however, the Region 1 release misses out on:

  • 16x9 enhancement
    The Region 4 release misses out on:
  • Booklet
    If you are looking towards Region 2 for relief, you are in even worse straits it seems. A previously released UK version was Pan and Scan only (ye gods!). A current German release apparently is 16x9 enhanced, but according to the Internet Movie Database is in the wrong aspect ratio of 1.85:1, as well as lacking an English soundtrack (my limited German suggests that have listed the same DVD as the Region 4, with an English soundtrack). Whilst the lack of a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack is almost unforgivable, it would seem that in view of the Region 4 release having 16x9 enhancement, we have perhaps the best version around at the moment. I cannot help but feel though that this is seriously crying out for a special edition re-release...
