|Lost Highway: 2-Disc Special Edition||R4|
This release of Lost Highway makes significant improvement on the old release from Shock (reviewed here). Video is much sharper, cleaner and colours are a revelation in comparison. The new DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks leave the old Dolby Digital 2.0 track in the dust.
The mk2 Region 2 France release is identical to ours bar the addition of French subtitles, a French Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track, and a booklet in French (content unknown). From screen captures I have seen, colours look a little more saturated than ours. I can't be certain which is closest to Lynch's intention, and the difference could be a product of the capturing process. Personally I prefer the look of this release.
Region 1 lucks out completely. A Canadian release is available, but has been cut to a ratio of 1.33:1. By all accounts, the transfer is terrible. Avoid at all costs!
Unless you want a French audio track, our release is top-notch.
