DVD Rating: **1/2

Read Steve Harwood's film review of Tuesday

The DVD has been given a sharp 2.35:1 widescreen transfer that looks great and shows off the film’s impressive cinematography. Sound is available in Dolby Digital 2.0, though disappointingly there are no subtitles provided.

The audio commentary features writer/director Sacha Bennett talking alongside actor Cristian Solimeno, who played the character Butch in the film. On the whole, Bennett is interesting to listen to as he talks about the challenges of making a low-budget film, particularly with regard to location shoots and filling the cast with members of the crew’s friends and family. Solimeno doesn’t really add anything; preferring to goof off than provide anything of real interest.

Of the additional extra features, the “vignettes” are essentially just short scenes of the cast members talking directly to camera while in-character; the gag reel is exactly what it says on the tin (though not particularly funny); while the 12-minute ‘Making of’ featurette consists of interviews with the cast, on-set footage and most interestingly, how a couple of the scenes were filmed.

Finally, the theatrical trailer is also included on the DVD.
