Spanish Judges [DVD] [1999]

The DVD of Spanish Judges makes terrific use of Dolby 5.1's ability to make people off the screen sound as if they are in different rooms. Often during the film a character will call out from the right rear speaker in a muted voice, clearly indicating that he or she is elsewhere while the character onscreen does some nefarious set-up regarding the intricate con job that's going on. Sound effects are particularly well rendered, especially those buried deep in the sound mix that are supposed to help create the creepy, moldy aura of the warehouse apartment where most of the action takes place. The widescreen digital transfer at large is of the standard that DVD fans have come to expect, crisp and clear, but it's much sharper than the full-screen VHS, which tends to smear the colors a bit.

    Spanish Judges
    One day Jack (Matthew Lillard) shows up at the antiques-laden warehouse apartment of Max (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Jamie (Valeria Golino), two ruthless low-level criminals with higher aspirations than the two-bit thieving they do now. Jack insists he's Max's brother, but Jamie, whose hobby is collecting poison, has her doubts. When Max arrives to find Jack tied to a chair, it's revealed that Jack isn't Max's brother -- he's a hoodlum with a line on a briefcase with a million dollars and a priceless, mysterious antiquity called the Spanish Judges; all he wants is Max and Jamie's help recovering the loot. But when the plan goes awry, and violently so, suddenly loyalties and motives are called into question. Was this Jack's plan all along, or did Jamie have something to do with it? ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi
