Zhang’s melodramas are pretty high on my UHD/BD wishlist. It’s unfortunate that Shanghai Triad gets the upgrade first, since it’s the only one I can recall disliking. Either way, I’ll definitely be picking it up for a rewatch.

Film Movement has the rights to Stanley Kwan's 'Center Stage', and the Metrograph will have digital screenings of the 154 minute cut that is sourced from a new 4K restoration.

Wonderful news, assuming the restoration isnt botched.

This was reported several years ago and I got to the stage of think it would never happen. Can't wait.

Svet seems to be angry with the color timing.

...Based on the trailer almost solely, which is a bit slight to draw such a definitive judgment. It's not helping he's been for months now mixing up Eclair and Ritrovata, despite their gradings being both problematic but massively different. That's how he ended up ranting about Cyrano de Bergerac and Le cercle rouge, and yet, because the gradings signatures weren't that intense and the trailers weren't enough to draw conclusions.

He's also putting Hiventy in the mix, which makes it look at times like a way to pit Europe vs the world (and some of his arguments read this way because they're generalizing too much). Which is interesting because several US labs/colorists have their share of debatable gradings too.

It's also interesting to see him using the WKW restorations as exemples since he wasn't bothered by the gradings of some of them (As Tears Go By and Days of Being Wild) and that they possibly only have been scanned and restored by Ritrovata but graded by One Cool Productions instead. I also certainly wouldn't use Goodbye Dragon Inn as a reference because the grading also looks too modern at times (I can't recall who graded it, but if it's the TFI, they've been a time tutored by Ritrovata).

Still, I wouldn't be surprised if Center Stage gets Ritrovata'd and that he's right since the trailer does look to bear a heavy mark of Ritrovata's grading (unlike other more in-between titles).
