Little Man Tate

( 2 )

Overview

MGM serves up a fine transfer on Little Man Tate -- a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen picture that is nearly flawless. The colors look extremely bright and bold with no fading present, and black levels are solidly dark. Though there are slight imperfections in the picture, these are minimal and don't detract from the viewer's enjoyment of the movie. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is a passable mix for a film that is not very heavy in directional sound. While dialogue, effects, and music are all clear ...

Overview

MGM serves up a fine transfer on Little Man Tate -- a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen picture that is nearly flawless. The colors look extremely bright and bold with no fading present, and black levels are solidly dark. Though there are slight imperfections in the picture, these are minimal and don't detract from the viewer's enjoyment of the movie. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is a passable mix for a film that is not very heavy in directional sound. While dialogue, effects, and music are all clear and concise, the main surround feature on this track comes from composer Mark Isham's upbeat jazz score. Also included are French and Spanish Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround mixes, as well as French- and Spanish-language subtitles. Though Little Man Tate is not jam-packed with extra features, it does include a commentary track by star/director Jodie Foster. The track is thoroughly enjoyable, with Foster sounding chatty and excited about her first feature film. While there are a few gaps of silence, overall the track moves along briskly, with behind-the-scenes stories and interesting nuggets of information about the production. Also included is an original theatrical trailer for Little Man Tate. While this is not the most expansive DVD on the market, the video, audio, and supplemental portions of the disc make this well above average and a good buy for fans.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
The directorial debut of actress Jodie Foster, this comedy-drama about a Cincinnati boy genius is one of the decade's most underrated gems, based on a nearly flawless script by Scott Frank that is chock full of wit, intelligence, emotional insight, and a gentle good humor. The performances here are uniformly excellent, particularly that of Dianne Wiest as a fellow, adult genius whose remarkable brains don't extend to a self-knowledge of her own fragile egotism and bitterness. Foster is less convincing as a blue-collar hausfrau if only because her innate taste and astuteness tend to shine through her slightly underdeveloped role (a brief sojourn for her character in Florida also smacks of narrative artifice, the script needing for her to leave the stage momentarily). These are the few minor flaws in a structurally air-tight, compelling, and utterly satisfying film, proving that Woody Allen and his Manhattan stomping grounds don't have the market cornered on the presentation of brilliant, funny, and absorbing human entertainment. Little Man Tate is a charming film destined to be discovered with delight by weekend cable TV viewers and video rental seekers willing to try something different. Frank found less fertile artistic ground for his next three films, all of them dark crime thrillers, Dead Again (1991), Final Analysis (1992), and Malice (1993). It was only when he returned to material with an underpinning of sly humor that his work began earning the label of "modern classic" again, with such films as Get Shorty (1995) and Out of Sight (1998).
