The greatest crime is the DVD fiasco
16 July 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I had this fantastic drama on video, and was most excited when I found I could upgrade with the DVD release. So I gave away my video and bought the DVD, only to find to my horror that the DVD is edited, has new titles put on which are unbelieveably tacky, and worst of all, is DUBBED into Standard Scots!

This destroys all the beauty of the piece, both the chilling dialogue and the comic timing.

Additionally the blown up print makes the film look like a home movie.

An absolute disaster, and a successful job of making a gem look awful.

And the person I gave the video to taped over it.
