    I'm not put off by the length but rather the video and audio quality...it's been restored by World Cinema Foundation half a decade ago and still no decent release?!

    EDIT: Thanks Criterion <3

    This could've been wrapped up in half the time. Not bad, though not great either. 7 years 10 months ago
