Remember the Criterion teal gremlins?…the vandals who radically distorted the color palettes of four significant 20th Century classics — Pier Paolo Pasolini‘s Teorema, Brian DePalma‘s Sisters, John Schlesinger‘s Midnight Cowboy and Ron Shelton‘s Bull Durham?
(DVD Beaver’s Gary Tooze recently claimed to have noticed “some minor teal infiltration” on Criterion’s Amores perros Bluray, so that would make five.)
Well, the teal meanies are back, except now they’ve shifted gears and are vandalizing with dark green tinting. The current victim is Bong Joon-ho‘s Memories of Murder. This new Criterion travesty pops on 4.20.21.
I know nothing except what I’m seeing on DVD Beaver, and the visual evidence is…you tell me.
