5th viewing. Still haven't seen this anywhere near approaching sober and I don't intend to.
The "4K83" 2160p bootleg sourced from an original 35mm
Eastman print struck directly from the original film negative in 1983.
Thought I'd just give this unauthorised pristine presentation of the original theatrical version a sample but found myself sticking with it till the end. Still flawed in many ways but masterful in so many more. It feels almost petty to penalize it for not being perfect (to an adult), especially after 36+ years of failed attempts to best it.
Also, possibly the greatest assembly of midget performers since THE WIZARD OF OZ.
