DVD Comparison:

 

Directed by Miranda July
USA 2005

 

  Wow. I enjoyed this film way out of proportion to what I was expecting. Winner of the Camera d'or Award for best first film at the Cannes Film Festival, Miranda July's directorial debut focuses on a separated, but calmly centered, shoe salesman (John Hawkes) and an eccentric square-peg performance artist (played by director/writer July). They connect with parallel stories of children (and the elderly) coping to mature in an adult word in this unique, and at times humorous, expression of contemporary existence. Touching on facets of love, longing, self-support, aging, raising children... the film powers through poignant scene after scene. I was pretty blown away by the whole experience and we strongly recommend! out of

Comments Henrik Sylow
A overall beautiful transfer. Good details, strong colors, no visible artifacts.

The source of Optimum appears the be the same as of the MGM, but when comparing the two images, Optimum has the better image. When zooming in, the MGM displays minor artifacts and bleeding colors, which Optimum doesn't have. However this is at 500%, so one would most likely at regular viewing never notice.

Optimum has an interview by July, where she introduces the film, explains what she attempted to say with it and elaborates on its themes. Following this, a cast and crew interview, where July and the actors reflect upon the film, along side clapping July on her back. The final piece of additional material is a behind the scenes featurette.

Gary Tooze
Decent, if not stellar, image on this progressive and anamorphic DVD from MGM. Strong, almost saturated, colors and relative detail show through in this moderately-lit production. 5.1 audio is never tested, optional yellow subtitles, deleted scenes and trailers round out this competent DVD. We recommend, but wish the film had more supplements especially a director commentary.

NOTE: Just a quick note to say that colors on the MGM DVD of Me and You and Everyone We Know are far too saturated compared to the print I saw less than a month ago. (Thanks Daniel!)
