    Anyone picked up the recent Criterion release of "Ran?" I'm curious how
    good the newest transfer is, and most importantly, is it in the correct
    original theatrical release aspect ratio?

    fredman Guest has a pretty good review of this title (I confess I'm not
    familiar) and state that they have gotten it right this time around.

    Does Criterion ever get it wrong?

    Now and then. The framing on CHASING AMY was off, because
    that's what Disney gave them. And they released ALPHAVILLE in
    fullscreen, because that's the way Godard wanted them to release
    it (their LD edition was widescreen). But they don't often screw up.

    Actually, "they" is this sense meant the previous iterations of the
    DVD by two other publishers - who apparantly did not get it right.
