    There was some controversy about the SD of this having incorrect colors so I'm wondering how the blu-ray will turn out.

    I have the Criterion DVD In The Mood For Love, was not aware of any color issues, not a movie for everyone as the pace is slow, not much in the way of action.

    Looking at the Criterion page for this release, it appears that a few supplements that are on the 2-disc DVD set are being dropped from the single-disc Blu, as follows:

    [*]
    The music of In the Mood for Love, presented in an interactive essay, on the DVD edition
    [*]
    Essay by film scholar Gina Marchetti illuminating the film’s unique setting on the DVD edition
    [*]
    Photo gallery on the DVD edition
    [*]
    Biographies of key cast and crew on the DVD edition



    On the other hand, the following appears to be unique to the new Blu:


    [*]
    Two new interviews with critic Tony Rayns, one about the film and the other about the soundtrack, on the Blu-ray editio



    They are also replacing the critic's essay in the booklet with a new essay by a different critic.



    Accordingly, Criterion completists upgrading to Blu may want to hold onto their DVD set.
