[Idea] Before Sunrise (1995): Restored US Master
#1
Know it's been a bit since I've completed a custom BD, but I'm looking at doing Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise (1995) as one of my next projects. It's one of my favorite films of all time, and I'd love to preserve it in the most theatrically faithful quality possible.

The Criterion release is wonderful, but I'm a bit skeptical about the color grading and contrast. Everything looks rather flat and a bit magenta-hued to my eyes, as if it was just scanned from an IP without extensive alteration. In fact, the overall color timing is more or less like the DVD for better or worse. But, unfortunately, I don't know for certain what the film looked like in cinemas, and I've never had the pleasure of seeing a 35mm print.

Does anyone have any experience with the film in 35mm? Anything helps, as I'm working completely blind here. If you've got photos from an old eBay auction, trailer cels, or even a particular cogent recollection of a screening Big Grin , please post in the thread!

Screencaps from the BD and DVD here for reference: http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?d1=10022&d2=10023&c=4022

(I also have no idea how the international home video releases of this movie are like, so, if you know of one with radically different timing, it might be of use!) 

Thanks everyone!

The Critertion BD looks like a new scan of the same source (most likely an IP) used for the old Warner DVD, as some shots have the same specks in the same spots as the DVD but others are at different places between the two.
