    UGH..Talk about mosquito graininess...awful....Looks blown up to 1.85. On the special feature one sees the 1.33 scenes and it looks beautiful. I'll return the blu ray...the DVD looks much better.

    Hey, Richard talks about you in his review! :)
    "Those who do not care for the grain can take a look at the featurette about the film, which contains clips which clearly have undergone considerable DNR."

    I never complain about grain. I have a Samsung 55" 4K SUHD TV.
    This is ridiculous...looks awful. I have already resold it.

    With all due respect, and if you weren't happy and prefer the reduced resolution of the DVD, you made the right decision for yourself. Personally, I've seen the film several times in 35mm theatrical engagements at revival theaters over the years, and the intentional "documentary-style" look of the film (as opposed to the velvety Hollywood-style look) has always been there. This is the way the film was shot, and I'm extremely pleased with the faithfulness of the new Blu-ray, and the way it has captured the true essence of this very unique and unconventional work. To my eye, the Blu-ray is a gem.
