The DVD captures the film's extensive (and groundbreaking) digital color manipulation work, and looks like the theatrical release. The Blu-Ray master apparently went back to the original negative, for the sake of a sharp image, but only roughly approximates the color work.

The film was made at a time of year when Mississippi is very green. The Coens tried to hide this fact as thoroughly as possible in the 2000 color work. The Blu-Ray version of this shot shows an overly-green, sickly-looking palette.
