This particular release of Leone’s 1965 For a Few Dollars More, is finally, a revelation.
I have no idea why it’s taken this long to get it correct. Whether the hands, the budgets, or intimately, the post facilities and their hard and software.
I’ve not seen a quality representation of this film, since I saw it as a dye transfer print back in 1965.
The same problems seem to have affected the entire series.
Courtesy of Kino Lorber, we now have proper color, stability, black levels, grain and shadow detail.
And along with them, more extras than one might think would fit on a single disc.
While I’m not familiar with any of the foreign releases, domestically, this is the one to own. It beautifully mimics the look and textures of dye transfer prints derived from the Techniscope originals.
