Gilbert Gil Gets Squished

(2 out of 5 stars)
"This is a recent, licensed version of Gil's "Acústico" album which first appeared in 2001. It's a great show, but whoever mastered this DVD took the original footage and inexplicably transformed it from its full screen format (4:3) into a widescreen format (16:9). Bad decision. The result is that Gilberto Gil and everyone else in the film appear "squished" during the entire 100-minute program. Unless you wear special glasses, my suggestion is that you try to locate the original Acústico album if possible."
