Absolutely awesome. Nathan Williams is a visual genius, I mean he is able to center the whole film and the whole action on the feelings.

This is the best looking version of the theatrical release. You also get the standard blu-ray with 3 different versions of the film. You can’t go wrong with this package in my opinion.
