The review and following comments make many excellent points.

Here's the skinny: that despite all good intentions, if each of us edited this movie we'd end up with a hundred different movies. A thousand.

But to deliberately change or edit even one thing - even colour - based on our personal wants or bias - is completely unacceptable. That it plainly deceiving us.

Amazingly .. it's still a great movie.
