Default 'The Rules of the Game (1939)' - High-Def Digest Review

Steven has reviewed the Criterion release of 'The Rules of the Game.' He says this stands proudly among the medium's greatest cinematic achievements. This Blu-ray features solid video and audio, along with plenty of extras. This is highly recommended and a must own for cinephiles.

Just finished watching this and I'm rather disappointed with the video quality. For a good portion of the film the right half of the frame is out of focus while the left half is in focus. Probably due to the elements available for transfer but disappointing nonetheless.The film is already very soft by nature so this additional problem is a undesirable distraction. Don't remember if Criterion's DVD release had the same problem (probably did).
