With its frank depiction of sexuality and its emotional complexity, Bernardo Bertolucci's controversial Last Tango in Paris managed to create a substantial stir during its initial theatrical release. Hailed by some influential critics and derided by others, the film comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio. Bertolucci's visual brilliance shines through on this fine-looking disc. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. Aside from the film's original theatrical trailer, an eight-page booklet is the only other bonus feature. The text offers some background on the reaction to the film, a passage on the brilliance of lead actor Marlon Brando, and a few paragraphs on the effect the film has had on future filmmakers who are trying to push the boundaries of how sex can be displayed onscreen. This is a solid release from MGM/UA.
