I just read that Michael has updated his review a month ago with remarks about what Kotcheff has said about restoration.

While I can understand how the endorsement of the movie director can mean a lot, there are so many previous cases going against this belief that it's now hard, especially when looking at the final result, to believe this is the best the movie can look.

I'm also strongly disagreeing with the overall points made about how the restoration work has repaired fading, scratches and specks, and how it might be better to have this end result than adding artificial grain. This has actually nothing to do with the issues at stakes here, which is having an unfiltered restoration that indeed assess fading and damages (and to be fair, the restoration has assessed these) but keep the grain a 35mm OCN should have, no matter how it is conserved.
