Thrills and chills abound in the dramatic film The Deep End. Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, Fox has done a justifiably nice job at making sure that this transfer looks clean and clear of almost any and all blemishes. The colors in this picture look very clear with the black levels well saturated and solid. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and sounds excellent. The background noises and ambient sound on this track are very well mixed with all speakers being utilized thoroughly. Also included on this disc are English and French Dolby 2.0 soundtracks, as well as subtitles in English and Spanish. The extra features for The Deep End include a fairly in-depth commentary track by directors Scott McGeehee and David Siegel, a short "Making of the Deep End" featurette that is your basic promo spot, a very intriguing 30-minute "Anatomy of a Scene" special which includes interviews with the crew and actors, a theatrical trailer for the film, a single TV spot, and a still gallery with some publicity photos.

One of the most amazing films of the year is ''The Deep End''. Its rich story and elegant camera shots collaborate with an original score to make a moving and suspenseful film. Tilda's performance as a Modern working mother strikes the right tone in every scene. She makes us beleive that she--a woman with three children--is thrown into the deepest secrets, one of her son Beau, the hidden body, the blackmailer, and the deepest secret lying in between the brink of betrayle....and hope. One of my own personal favorites,--Joe

I think that the title was well suited for the movie,it shows what true mother's love is like.I'm glad the directors decided to depict some of the issues that teenagers have to deal with on a daily basis(sexual identity conflicts).My only disappointment is that the directors should have allowed the character Beau to have seen the taped, should have shown the veiwers his reaction.More or less it was a great film. Can't wait to see what next these people have up their sleeves.
