Overview

Director Werner Herzog and actor Klaus Kinski team up for the unsettling Cobra Verde. Anchor Bay has done some nice work on this 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. This transfer looks clean and sharp with only the slightest amount of edge enhancement penetrating the image. Fans should be happy to have this widescreen version of the film which brilliantly captures the cinematographer's camera work. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 in German, as well as Dolby 2.0 for the English dub of the film. The newly created 5.1 soundtrack sounds very full and well-mixed. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are very clear with no trace of distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. Anchor Bay has generously thrown in a few extra features, starting with a commentary track by the director and Anchor Bay facilitator Norman Hill. This track gives much insight into how the film was made (for under two million dollars), and how the director and his sometimes nemisis/partner Klaus Kinski got along on the set. Also included on this disc is a theatrical trailer for the film as well as some talent files on the principal players.
