Does anybody know if a new version of "Bound for Glory" might be in the works on DVD? I watch my 2000 release ever now and then but it is a such a shoddy transfer and non-anamorphic to boot which does not translate well to HDTV. Such an important film deserves the Criterion touch.

That it does. It'd be nice if it got a clean up job, as Days of Heaven did. Wexler used quite a bit of lens diffusion on Bound for Glory, so that explains a lot of its softness, but it definitely needs a better transfer.
