Neil Jordan's highly stylized thriller The Good Thief has so much going for it, including a fine DVD, that the film may just find an audience on home video, something it couldn't do in the theaters. A 1.85:1 anamorphic image is on one side of the disc, while the full-frame alternative is housed on the flip side. The transfer is stellar in every way. Chris Menges, the veteran director of photography, did an amazing job lighting the film, and it's reproduced brilliantly on this disc. Colors are vibrant and somewhat over-saturated, creating a seedy world few ever see. The 5.1 Dolby Digital soundtrack is rather standard, without any significant use of the surrounds. Dialogue is difficult to understand at times, as all the actors (other than Nick Nolte, and he's his own story) are from Europe, but that is where subtitles come in handy. The extras are nothing more than ordinary. On the plus side is a exceptional scene-specific commentary from Jordan. He's in fine form as he covers everything from this remake to working with the actors. In addition, there is a mediocre six-minute studio piece about the film with some interviews and seven deleted scenes, also with optional commentary from Jordan. As is often becoming the case with Fox titles, some of the extras are on one side, while the rest are on the other -- an annoyance, as they all could easily fit on each side. Nevertheless, this is a small complaint for an otherwise well produced DVD.
