Neil Jordan's haunting 1992 classic The Crying Game is available on DVD through Artisan Entertainment. The DVD comes with standard scene-selection screens and is presented in widescreen and full-screen versions, both accessible from the main menu. Bonuses include the theatrical trailer, as well as biographies and filmographies of the film's four main stars, Stephen Rea, Miranda Richardson, Forest Whitaker, and Jaye Davidson. The DVD also features detailed production notes, but not much biographical information on Jordan. Unfortunately, the disc lacks any subtitles or alternate-language audio tracks, which is rather strange for a film so well-known. The picture and sound quality (Dolby 2.0 Surround Sound) are average.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A great love story
Excellent movie about a man with reservations about his affiliation with terrorists. His bond with his captive. And the love affair with his captive's love interest after his captive's demise. The undercurrent of affectation, the guilty pleasure, and the surprise of gender bending are all part of a story that has a little bit of something for everyone. Fergus, Dil, and Jody are really great characters. This picture should have swept the Academy awards the year it was released. A must see film!
