Wonderful movies, disappointing transfers, 18 Mar 2012
Wonderful movies, but unfortunately there is something wrong with the black-and-white images, which look very digitalized and not film-like at all. By removing the film grain, using a process called Digital Noise Reduction, the image is effectively robbed of fine texture and subtle tonal modulations. Everything looks lifeless, like made out of plastic. Look for instance at faces in close-up; they look like the faces of protagonists in some video game.
