This is, by a significant margin, the best-looking release of OPERA I’ve seen to date. Compression is vastly improved compared to the Italian and French releases (I haven’t seen the US disc by Scorpion Releasing, so I won’t comment on that), the intermittent image instability that affects the master has to a great extent been tamed, and the audio on the English post-Cannes dub is the best I’ve ever heard the film sounding. Highly recommended.
