New Line Cinema presents Bamboozled in a 1.75:1 widescreen transfer, with 5.1 Surround Sound. This hard-hitting drama about the making of a modern-day minstrel show (with tragic results) has the distinction of being one of the first theatrical releases shot on Digital Video. In his commentary, director Spike Lee explains how this new technology changed his filming style, giving him the opportunity to use as many as ten or more cameras to shoot a scene, all the while keeping costs at a minimum for this relatively low-budget film. Otherwise, his comments are surprisingly laid back; he has endless compliments for the talented cast, particularly dancer extraordinaire Savion Glover, and gratitude for getting stars Damon Wayans and Jada Pinkett-Smith for his small film. In the "Making of Bamboozled" featurette, the cast returns the favor, speaking of their appreciation of Lee, his working style, and the subject matter. The "Deleted/Alternate Scenes" section contains 19 clips, which have not been transferred to film stock, and therefore retain a grainy look and feel. This DVD release provides a thought-provoking look at racial stereotypes, and an opportunity to explore how DV production may affect future filmmaking.
