Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 October 2015
No point in reveiwing this film as anyone who has heard of it knows how brilliant it is. Some people are put off by its length. However, I think it is one of the most intensely wacthable films ever made. Every scene is a pure joy to watch. The film is 5 star but I have reservations about the transfer. Colors are excellent but the images are over sharp which takes away some of the super smooth images and skin tones that I associate with Technicolor. My other gripe is that the image is slightly cropped. So instead of the original 2.20 or 2.35 to 1 you get approximately 2.05 to 1. This is a pity because David Leans original film is arguably the best example of widescreen cinema ever. Every frame was composed for the super wide format and some of this artistic perfection is lost in the transfer. I would pay good money to watch this at the cinema again.
