They incorrectly used a more naturalistic, neutral color timing that destroys the stylized look of the film. But it's not just the nighttime blues. A bunch of day scenes are missing the ruddy orange cast that helped create the "fall in Illinois" illusion. The grass and trees look way too green (though less green than they look on the Divimax DVD edition).

I can't imagine how incredible this film would look with a from-scratch higher resolution transfer with the correct color timing. I'm not going to get my hopes up until there's an official press release confirming Cundey's involvement.
