John Sayles 1988 film "Eight Men Out" is one of the best baseball films of all time. His take on the 1919 Black Sox Scandal examines the myths and realities of our national pastime. Director Sayles lovingly recreates the era in this perfectly cast film.
Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson's rich images are flawlessly presented. Well-saturated colors. No delineation problems or artifacts.
The remastered 5.1 track is outstanding.
No Easter Eggs Found on Disc.
John Sayles is someone that film students can learn from. His commentary track is great. The DVD includes a two-part, feature-length documentary dealing with the making of the film and the real events portrayed. Numerous interviews with filmmakers and historians make this an worthwhile expense of the viewer's time.
A must have DVD. A great film given the excellent treatment on DVD which it deserves.
