I just received Criterion's glorious upcoming DVD for Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding (2001). As you can see above and in the subsequent screen captures below, Declan Quinn's wondrous cinematography has never looked better. That's because the Criterion 2-disc set sports a new high-definition digital transfer, restored under the supervision of both Nair and Quinn. The DVD and (a no doubt even more remarkable looking) Blu-ray will both be available on October 20. A proper review will follow when I get back from New York, but until then feast your eyes on these few stills.
