:Novecento: No,no and no (again :) ). Of course Peckinpah tried to get a certain look in post-production, and CROSS could have
used a little color grading here and there - now that it's possible, but the BD-look is just impossible. The images are all flat, no debth, nothing...
I understand why some like the new look, it certainly has its kind of atmosphere, but the loss of contrast and depth is just terrible.
Anyway. We might play around with it next year. I saw a test which could result in a great-looking compromise...

Sounds good. Looking forward to seeing the compromise.

CROSS OF IRON is finally available on Blu-ray in the US! The release features all my supplements (almost 2 hrs) in HD including my documentary PASSION & POETRY - SAM's WAR. The film master is the same (uncut) as previously released with the other releases I co-produced in the UK, Germany & Japan...
