When you first think of the name David Lynch, you would think more in the sense of R-rated, kinky, violent and vulgar films. Not this one. The Straight Story, an even cleaner film than his 1980 Elephant Man, could not be more G-rated. But Lynch shows us here that he does not need to use his common elements to make a great film.
Theres really nothing wrong with this transfer, although there shouldnt be, considering that it was made about 4 years ago. You get a nice 5.1 surround, and clear picture, and a very wide presentation.
Nada. Actually, on the whole disc, there is only 2 menus. The only thing that makes this disc sold without a box is a trailer, and a little note from Lynch himself explaining why there isn't any chapter stops (sadly, for most this film would have to be seen in parts, unless your so comfortable in your seat you dont want to get up).
Although this is G-rated, anyone under 10 would fall asleep in less than 10 minutes. Forget children, most adults would not have the patience for this film. But if your children do have patience, absolutly. There couldnt be less wrong with this film. A wonderful, warm hearted slice of life.
