The quality of Sterling's Millennium Series discs generally rival any major studio title. As for Free Money, picture quality is outstanding. The image is framed at 1.85:1, but does not use an anamorphic transfer. There are a lot of colors that come off very well on this disc, in particular green, which is used for a nice effect. The colors are true and never show any sign of bleeding. Brief shots in black-and-white look wonderful. The sound, a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, is good though far from perfect. At times there is some good separation to the back surround speakers, but all too often it's a missed opportunity. Still, dialogue is clear with no real distraction. This disc also has a Dolby Digital 4.0 track and Spanish subtitles. This disc has quite a few nice additional features, though most aren't very significant. The highlight would have to be the audio commentary track, this time from director Yves Simoneau and executive producer Joseph Brutsman. It's scene-specific and filled with wonderful anecdotes about making the film. Truth be told, it's far better than the movie itself. The disc also has a very brief and rather useless photo gallery that doesn't have any behind-the-scenes pictures. On the plus side, there is a virtual plethora of trailers from other Millennium titles. There is a trivia game and some DVD-ROM material. Not too bad, but it would have been nice to see a documentary and maybe a commentary track from some of the actors (imagine one from Brando!).
