For All Mankind [The Criterion Collection] (Blu-ray documentary review)

The contents of this Blu-ray disc were originally published in 1989, presumably on video (NTSC/VHS), since even DVDs did not come on to the market until 1997. So although this is ‘digitally re-mastered’, etc supervised and approved by producer-director Al Reinart, the quality of the pictures is still limited by the fact that it originally […]
