Fiercely independent and critically praised, Raising Victor Vargas is the kind of film that wouldn't receive any sort of special edition treatment, and that is precisely the case with this DVD from Columbia/TriStar. It really is a shame, since the sole supplements are nothing more than three trailers for other indie titles, All I Want, All the Real Girls and The Debut. Anything would have been entirely welcome, especially a commentary from first-time feature director Peter Sollett, but sadly, it's not to be. Fortunately, the transfer has more to offer. The anamorphic 1.85:1 image is relatively strong, displaying some interesting colors and, more importantly, the detail of the inner city. Some grain is evident, especially during the brighter scenes, but never enough to be a distraction. Finally, the Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo soundtrack, while not offering too much in the way of a sound field, does present the dialogue clearly. Surrounds wouldn't contribute greatly to this small film, so what is available is entirely sufficient.
