Looks great, sounds great, trailer, captions, no chapter stops. Bare-bones, but no complaints about the image or sound.

And a great film. My absolute favorite from '99.

Glorious video image...

Perfectly adequate audio...

Only a trailer for extras (apparently, a Japanese DVD has a bunch of supplemental features)...

No chapter stops, per David Lynch's request (whoop-dee-doo, I say, but some people seem to care about this)...

No French audio track or subtitles.

The cover is beautifully done, very classy looking.

Not sure what you meant by this. This DVD is not pan&scan.

The DVD is 16x9 anamorphic, and looks great.
