Why is that so hard to grasp?
We have had a similar discussion with Moon in the Gutter BR
. Assume that the stills are accurate. If these kinds of artifacts bother you in normal viewing, then you should not purchase One From the Heart BR
. It is not likely in the near term future that it will look any better than it does today. Although there is a large piece of dust easily viewable in one scene that was missed; somewhat reminiscent of the dust easily seen on a print of Paris, Texas
(opening desert scene) that was transferred onto DVD, but removed by Criterion in their BR
edition. Coppola does this stuff because he wants the BRs
out in the market and available to those who are willing to purchase them. He makes a hell of a lot more from his wines which easily finance his film making with its associated activities.
