I'll tell you another problem with the restored Othello (I'm on commission from Bea and this is a ploy to make you watch it again and maybe this time the subliminal messages will work): it STUTTERS! It stutters, it jerks, sometimes the picture pauses for a split second between cuts, yada yada yada. Ignore the soundtrack (please ignore the soundtrack!), just focus on the picture, and you'll see this stuff happening a LOT.
On the one hand I think, 'Well, 1992, technology's come on a lot since then...' On the other, 'But, hold on, this was only a year before Jurassic Park! [Speaking of computer technology.]' So it isn't a perfect excuse.
It's a bloody mess. I just like any old excuse to say this. (But if it makes you watch it again, I still get the commission...)
