It’s a funny old world. Six years ago, I wrote a scathing review of the image quality on Arrow’s Blu-ray release of PHENOMENA on this very site. This week, I signed off on a new 4-disc limited edition of the same film released by the same company and overseen by yours truly, derived from a brand new 4K restoration of the film.
