Steve Martin stars in the funny film noir dental thriller Novocaine. Artisan has put forth considerable effort on this 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Featuring bright colors and even black levels, this transfer looks very well rendered with only the slightest amount of edge enhancement marring the image. The audio is featured in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English. This is an excellent soundtrack sporting lots of directional effects and some funky music by Danny Elfman and Steve Bartek. Also included on this disc are subtitles in English and French. This is a very nice edition of Novocaine that includes a vast array of special features, starting with a commentary track by director David Atkins. Atkins has a working knowledge of the production and story and throws out many entertaining anecdotes about the film. Two features -- "Getting the Shot" and "Bitten" -- give the viewer a working knowledge of both the film's production and dental forensics. "Bitten" is an especially neat featurette that includes interviews with dental forensic specialists discussing how to snatch dental records off of a mutilated corpse. "Getting the Shot" is a by-the-numbers eight-miunte promo spot for the film. Finally there are five rather uninteresting deleted scenes, two theatrical trailers for the film, "The Music of Novocaine" music sampler, some thin production notes, bonus trailers for Artisan movies, and some information on the film's cast and crew.
