I just watched this interesting film for the first time. The new Criterion transfer looks really good. They obviously did a lot of restoration to make it a decent looking film. Throughout the film there are a number of blips/flashes that occur and it is a little distracting. I am using a Panasonic DMP-BD80 with the latest firmware. Here is a list of the times that I have seen these blips/flashes. I am assuming they are something inherent in the film but I was curious. 4:56 26:03 49:37 51:52 106:44 127:10 127:38 Overall I am very happy with this. What a weird and quirky film.
