Life As A House= OAR??

Hey all,

Just wondering if "Life As A House" is presented in its original aspect ratio anywhere in the world. In a very "recruit-like" move, they cropped the picture for the home video release and I was wondering if it were possible to find this anywhere in its proper aspect ratio.

What's the correct OAR Vs. the anamorphic WS version currently available in R1 ?

The theatrical AR was, I think, 2.40:1. The DVD release was cropped to about 2.1:1 per the wishes of the cinematographer.

I was quite peed off about this at first, but it looks okay in 2.10:1. Such a brilliant, brilliant film too
