Does the blue lens flaring in this film come strictly from anamorphic lenses, or is there some sort of filtering going on here, too.

Many scenes exhibit the tell-tale anamorphic blue horizontal streaks, but there seems to be more going on that just that. Everything seems to have a soft blue aura around it.

Anyone know what this was shot on/with?

It was almost all shot on Fuji F-125T stock using Panavision anamorphic lenses. I don't think there was any unusual filtration, although I seem to recall reading that the Fuji film was shot uncorrected in daylight. Primo anamorphic lenses in particular seem to get a very strong blue tint to the flaring.

I did just watch it on F/X, yes. It looked terrible compared to my memory of repeated theatre viewings, and even compared to DVD - but it still had that characteristic blueness to it that I wondered about.

In addition to the anamorphic lenses, maybe might they have enhanced the blues as well? This may explain why Sandler's blue suit is just so electric!
