Description

Gary Ross' Seabiscuit comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The transfer does a fabulous job of capturing John Schwartzman's golden cinematography. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. French and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include an excellent commentary track recorded by Ross and his friend Steven Soderbergh. They discuss the filmmaking process, editing techniques, the difficulty of shooting period pieces, and their techniques for working with various actors. They offer an entertaining look at the film. There is a documentary that goes into greater detail about the real history of the famed horse. Another featurette shows how Gary Ross got his vision from the page to the screen. A third featurette focuses on the various aspects of production. Lastly, there is a collection of photographs taken by star Jeff Bridges on the set. This is an excellent disc.
