Criterion with their unreadable white subtitles with black and white movies ?!!
on August 10, 2015
This is not a review of the film, but rather a complaint against Criterion for always using hard to read white subtitles that are sometimes impossible to read against white backdrops. English company Eureka for example uses better readable subtitles. This continuing strategy by Criterion is really annoying. What's the use of a perfect Bluray picture with weak subtitles. The irony is that the subtitles on the DVD's by criterion are really good when playing black and white pictures.
It's really sad since Wild strawberries is not the only victim of Bad subtitles on Bluray. Check out also (The rules of the game, Persona, Band of outsiders, Vivre sa vie.....and many many black and white movies).
Thank you Criterion for ruining these masterpieces.
