Director Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused (1993), Before Sunrise (1995)) spins this true-crime tale of four Texas brothers who became the most successful bank robbers of their era in this unusually restrained and thoughtful historical crime drama, coming to DVD from 20th Century Fox Home Video. Presented in the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and offering selections of both closed-captioned English Dolby Digital 5.1 and English Dolby Digital Surround audio tracks, the disc also features a French Dolby Digital Surround track in addition to optional English and Spanish subtitles. Extra features are fairly bare bones though the disc does contain interactive menus and an original theatrical trailer.
