SD was problematic with this title but Blu-ray has ‘turned the
corner’ returning the visuals to the painterly luster of their
theatrical roots. This is dual-layered with a modest bitrate for
the over 3-hour film framed for this release in 1.78:1. Colors
seem brighter and truer than SD could relate and there is softness
in the scenes that were shot in that manner. This Blu-ray probably
looks as close to Barry Lyndon as we have seen from the digital
medium. Kubrick fans should rejoice.
