    I found this movie strangely familiar, like a repeating dream with no end, always just out of reach.

    This is a good example of how a great movie can be made with much of nothing, other than a good script.

    Is this the Criterion release?

    Regretfully NOT 16:9, it’s obsolete 4:3 framed with huge black bands left and right to 16:9. Better look for a true 16:9 1280×720 for such a great movie,, it exists.

      The original is 1.37:1 (48:35). Likewise, the restored version by Criterion is 1.37:1.

      One would have to crop it to get 16:9, which is not a good idea IMO.

      I have the Criterion version and it looks very good. I don’t know the quality of this one is, but it’s not “16:9” as it says in the description here as of now, that is unless you count those black bars.
