Great Film - Atrocious transfer
on 17 October 2012
When I bought this shortly after its release it went into the DVD player and then straight back to the shop! This was the worst transfer of the film I had ever seen - the video I owned was so much better. Luckily Criterion have released this in the States as part of an Eisenstein box set - get this, the image quality is stunning. Eureka now do a great job with all their releases but in the early days their releases were often very poor with picture quality control low on the priority list. I'm amazed that no other reviewers have commented on this aspect of the DVD.
