An occasionally soft image with strong colors. Barton Fink is a darkly shot film, but I was impressed about the color hues and although there are occasional scratches and minor dirt speckles in the picture, it is still pretty strong regardless that it is not razor sharp. The sound is well balanced and there are some nice extras with "deleted scenes"," stills" and an anamorphic "trailer". It is an adept DVD, but not stupendous. out of      Gary W. Tooze
