Whither ‘Barry Lyndon’ in HD?

One more Lyndon-related link to complete the daily trifecta. There’s an OK standard-def transfer from 2001, but still no Blu-ray or HD version on iTunes. Nick Kostopoulos reports on The Auteurs that we just need to sit tight — Warner Brothers is working on it and wants to get it right.

If it’s as good as the Blu-ray transfer of 2001, I’ll be happy.

Update: Ends up iTunes does have an HD version, but it’s only for rent, and only available on Apple TV (which is why I didn’t see it when I checked iTunes on my Mac). No idea how good a transfer it is.
