But that version still is in fullscreen, isn't?

I've seen it and it says it's Pan and Scan, unless there's another version I'm not aware of.

in what way? sharpness is not one of the things pal has if you compare it with ntsc. i prefer region 1's in front 2's.

well i'm talking about r4, not that it matters.

but to answer ur question: in basically every possible way, read http://www.michaeldvd.com.au/Articles/PALvsNTSC/PALvsNTSC.asp

basically this is a good version cos it's 16x9 enhanced. and since there is no better version of the movie, there is no choice.

PAL has a higher number of scan lines than NTSC...  I forget the numbers, but you can Google it if you like.

Of course, if you watch a PAL DVD in the US, on your NTSC TV set, the multi-region DVD player is going to convert the signal into the smaller, NTSC number of scan lines, so the quality will be the same as what we're always used to.   People will tell you they think the picture looks better, but it's psychological...  if you're watching it on an NTSC set, you're seeing a regular NTSC regardless of the disc format.  Mogwai, if you see a difference in region 1 and 2 DVDs on your setup, it may be the way your player compresses those extra lines that's causing a little phase or blurriness or something.  I've never seen a PAL-to-NTSC transition look bad, though.

BTW, JB and others, I have a cheap little Apex DVD player (the 1500 model) that's like $65 at Wal-Mart or online, and you can get a patch off the internet (or from me if you want) that makes it region-free.  It plays both PAL and NTSC.  It's great...  I have a nicer Toshiba that I keep hooked up most of the time, but when I want to watch one of my Region 2 or 4 DVDs, or something that's in PAL, I hook up the Apex and away we go.

Macs only let you change the PAL/NSTC setting a few times, and I've already done it twice to watch Idioterne.

I get people, and then I don't get them.

Tonight at work (video store), I had 5 people call or come in asking for copies of 'Lost Highway,' and it's all too blantantly obvious that they're asking for it b/c of the fact that the Robert Blake verdict came down today.  

Will these legal shenanigans result in a R1 dvd?  Let's see if it gets exploited.

I'm crossing MY fingers to hope it will happen.

This seems as good a place as any to link this:

Same with me. I've been wishing and hoping for a Lost Highway DVD for years. I picked it up on VHS a while back, and it was quite honestly one of the worst quality transfers I'd ever seen, if not THE. I can't really say I was expecting much from a pan and scanned VHS though.

I saw the video of Blake's reaction, and it almost made my cry. He looked totally sincere and grateful. Remember O.J. Simipson's acquittal reaction? He looked like he just won a football game.

I saw it live and you're right he was sincere. I found the expression, whether it was genuine or not, to be slightly haunting.

From Dugpa.com:

Actor Robert Blake Found Not Guilty = Good News for Lost Highway DVD

Yesterday, actor Robert Blake was found not guilty of the murder of Bonny Lee Bakley. Rumor in Hollywood was that Universal was holding back the Lost Highway DVD release until the murder trial blew over fearing bad press for releasing a gilm which depicts Blake in a unsavory role. My guess is that we will see the release this year right around the time of the Dune DVD, which will likely appear Q4 of this year.
