Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0760 Re: Kozintsev Hamlet and Lear

DVDs are kind of like video (NTSC versus PAL or Secam).  DVDs are made
by region, so that region 1 DVDs (playable in the U.S.) aren't supposed
to be played elsewhere, while region 2 DVDs (UK, Europe, Japan) can't be
played elsewhere.  In the U.S. and I assume in the U.K., there are lots
of DVD players, however, that play both regions.  They are more
expensive than single region DVD players, though.  The other major
difference between DVD and video is that DVD quality is not uniform. A
good transfer from film to DVD yields a far superior image than video
(the difference is clear to the naked eye). But bad transfers look worse
than video.
