Yes, I know it's a DVD/Bluray rip on a computer and there are many variables involved; but this is still a huge difference:

Well, the producers apparently did an 8K DI restoration of "Baraka" and made the Blu-Ray version from that (according to the "making of" doc on the same disc), so I'm sure they retimed the film during the process to their original intentions, which explains the difference in look.

BTW, I love my "Baraka" Blu-Ray disc! The "making of" doc is great, which is kinda unusual for BR. Usually the special features are lame EPK, which makes no sense to me. If you're the type of consumer that cares about high technical standards enough to actually invest in an HD display and Blu-Ray player (not to mention the more expensive discs), doesn't it also seem likely that you'd be more interested in detailed BTS and film tech docs than the average "I just wanna watch the movie" bloke? Just sayin'.
