🚫matthew🚫’s review published on Letterboxd:
watched the new remastered blu-ray packaged with the UHD disc. i don't have a 4k player or tv, but i am buying 4k blu-rays in preparation for when i can enjoy them. it looks incredible; although, white people of my generation would probably prefer to watch VHS dubs for the nostalgia factor. nice to see reference quality audio/video for once though.
the thing that struck me the most this time around is the Ozu-like moments between scenes. there's a really long montage of regular folks going about their business in the rain and it's my fav scene in the whole movie
can't wait for the Akira 4K restoration! woooooo
