Women In Film [DVD] [2001]

A female perspective is the heart of the feature Women in Film. The transfer is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and lacks the sharpness and contrast of most major releases. While most of the colors and black levels look good, there is far too much edge enhancement and softness for this to be a great-looking picture. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital Stereo in English and lacks any emotional or audible punch. While most of the dialogue, effects, and music are free of distortion and hiss, overall this is an only mediocre sound mix, minus any directional effects or surround sound use. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. The only extra feature available on this disc is an R-rated trailer located under the Lion's Gate logo.

Women In Film
Novelist/filmmaker Bruce Wagner skews the classic George Cukor film The Women in this digital video effort adapted from a section of his novel I'm Losing You (which was also made into a feature film). Using a video diary format, the director focuses on three women desperate to become filmmakers. There is Phyllis (Beverly D'Angelo), an acid-tongued independent producer with a penchant for pharmaceutical drugs, who shops around her highly troubled new film project and decides to keep a journal to record its progress. Sara (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) is a casting director stuck in a failing marriage who writes personal letters to her blind baby boy and confides in friend Holly Hunter about her need to get back on her feet. And Gina (Portia de Rossi) is a delusional actress/masseuse who steals the energies of her rich celebrity clientele and believes that TV producer Darren Star has stolen her ideas and is determined to seek retribution. Women in Film was shot by Russell Lee Fine, who transferred the video to a standard 35 mm format for release. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi
