Damnation Review ?

I read Jamie Rich's review of Bela Tarr's "Damnation". I hope that Facets "swell" transfer is acceptable. I wonder if it is enhanced for wide screen and if it is a PAL/NTSC port. Has anyone else seen this DVD?

For the most part, Facets has done a swell job on the picture for Damnation. It's widescreen (no aspect ratio given), and the black-and-white cinematography has nice values. There are only occasional glitches--white pops when the screen goes to black, soft edges or flickering here and there. Given Tarr's regular use of deep focus, though, all the fine points come through. As he moves in and out of different rooms, or as Karrer stares out the window at the scarred landscape, there is never any loss of detail.
