The transfer for La Dolce Vita is already great.

It can be improved upon without any doubt. It's an ageing 2012 restoration. It reminds me of older DataCine scans but since it was actually performed on an Arriscan, it probably just has high-frequencies filtered out. Not to say it's bad, but I wouldn't score it higher than 8 out of 10.

8 1/2 however has 2 HD masters : one from Criterion and one from Gaumont, but both have weaknesses (though I'd favor the Gaumont one).

Happy birthday, Maestro! 100 years ago today!

Where's that damn box set? Or at least the several blu-ray upgrades we need? I would love a good blu-ray of Intervista, for one example.

Incidentally, the version of Juliet of the Spirits that's on the Criterion Channel is a restoration by Cinema Forever. I think this has been released on blu-ray elsewhere in the world. It looks great.

You’ll get it soon enough. Would expect it to be announced tomorrow. It wasn’t going to be announced today because it’s a holiday and the Bergman was announced on a business day around his centennial birthday
