    Hello Mac,

    The issue you point out is a combination of incompetence and indifference.

    There are good people on the other side of the Atlantic that know exactly what is going on. Unfortunately, even though they are knowledgeable people, their voices and opinions are meaningless.

    You continue to see such terrible misfires because many projects are funded by the government -- the CNC gets plenty of safe funding this way -- as well as parties that provide donations which in return secure excellent publicity. It is a vicious circle.

    You do not need a "restoration expert" to tell you that what was done for Purple Noon, for instance, is criminal. Any film lover can see the obvious:

    Thanks for stopping by, Mac. Stay safe

    Mr, Svet;

    Firstly, thanks for your in depth reviews as they are well appreciated by me to help me to better understand the film, restoration efforts, features and the in-depth quality of the film on the BD media. Reading the disappointing Criterion review on, (Le Cercle Rouge), I wonder given your expertise, why doesn't people from Criterion or Studiocanal consult with you folks prior to releasing these films to ascertain if the restored film is being accurately represented? Sounds like a common sense question but does not necessarily mean its being applied properly.

    Hey, Svet.

    I looked at your review of Criterion’s 4K Blu-ray of RAGING BULL, and I’m happy that the native 4K presentation got a perfect score.

    I’m looking forward to purchasing it when it becomes available.

    Hey Matti,

    The text is there. I can see it. Let me investigate to find out what is going on.

    Update: Thanks for the note, Matti. I figured out what was the problem. One of these "<br><br>" lost ">" when I copied the text, and the system would not display a portion of my text in the box. Thank you for catching this, Matti. I hope you are doing well.

    Hi Svet

    Your review of the Abandoned (1949) is missing the video quality section.

    1. Hi Allardyce,

    Yes, indeed. These are exactly the type of out-of-left-field moments that I mentioned in the review. Thank you for reaching out, A


    2. Acer, Raging Bull on 4K Blu-ray should be a revelation. I much prefer this film to Taxi Driver, too. Happy Easter

    Hey, Svet.

    It's great news that RAGING BULL is coming to 4K Blu-ray from Criterion!! Let's hope the native 4K presentation is reference-quality.
