domino's obvious joke about what I'm about to bring up aside I cannot fathom what could possibly be done to make it look better unless I'm severely misinformed about what Inland Empire was shot with (DV?). All I remember is what was very clearly meant to be an intentional muddiness.

This was actually put out on Blu-ray in the UK. I can't speak to what they managed to do with the source since I haven't watched my copy yet-- maybe one day!

There is definitely work that can be done to clean up shot on video and give a better presentation, as well as just the basic impetus to put out a good release that will be in print forever as Janus will be able to... Bamboozled looks really good and was worth releasing for its improved presentation regardless of if it is actually native HD.

As long as they add "More Things That Happened" to any Inland Empire release I will be more than happy. I think I like that even more than the main feature because being a collection of random scenes it dispenses with any sense of linear narrative entirely and just becomes a place to linger in.
