Overview

Neal Slavin's adaptation of Arthur Miller's novel, Focus comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette. This is a decent disc from Paramount that does a superb job of presenting the film, but falls short on offering any compelling extras.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Stephen Holden
...the movie's surreal style, with its film-noir camerawork and ominous lighting, turns the story into a fable about fear and nonconformism, and Mr. Macy's and Ms. Dern's carefully shaded caricatures match the mood.
