Dave Kehr reviews the new Godfather Trilogy Blu-ray restoration (a restoration in consultation with original cinematographer Gordon Willis) for The New York Times:
The effect is not unlike that of a pristine 35-millimeter print projected in perfect focus — a rare enough phenomenon in a movie theater and, until quite recently, inconceivable in the living room.
This is a Holy Grail moment. With Criterion about to start releasing on Blu-ray before the end of the year, I going to have to make the leap. Curses.
