6 reels
9,541 feet/106 minutes

A very sharp 'scope print with consistent grading and very good depth of field throughout - one of the best I've had in a long time.

Some of our other sites have reported that the SR track is printed out of sync (these are analogue only cinemas and so cannot check any of the digital formats). I've watched mine (print no. UK25) in both SR and SR-D and both tracks are fine.

Tell me you had a lab invoice for that print and you didn't actually spend the time running the print through a frame counter.

Kodak's Cinesite worked closely with director Joel Coen and cinematographer Roger Deakins to use "digital intermediate" film technology to achieve unique "looks" for much of the photography in this movie. Here are the details:

I always measure the footage of prints as I make them up - we often get films back on second run a few months later, and comparing the two footages tells you if a significant amount of film has disappeared.

Example - I showed the colour restoration of 'Jour de Fete' on its release day, and then the same print back again two years later. It was 404 feet (4 1/2 mins) shorter! Yes, a whole 10% of the print had been lost due to wear/tear/damage. I feel sure that asking the box office to warn customers that their favourite scene might be missing or shortened headed off a lot of complaints, especially from the rep crowd who complain loudly and often, whether justified or not.
