"This dvd of PATTERNS put out by Critics Choice Video has really bad audio and video. A really good dvd of this great Rod Serling film is the one put out by Roan Group (RYKO dist.). I have a few Critics Choice Video titles and the only one that has good audio and video is the old Brian Donlevy television series "Dangerous Assignment". PATTERNS is a great film, but you'd better pass on this transfer of it."

"I came to this film seeking proof that it's possible to create complex, satisfying art in a commercial context. This film does exactly that by setting characters and narrative in a cutthroat corporate environment, and by couching unqualified success in terms of irreconcilable agendas. It's pure Serling optimism and contradiction, speaking insightful Truth to Power in a shockingly ethical manner that makes the film even more relevant today than to the more trusting era in which it was originally minted."
