Not only freckles but pimples! And bad munchkin makeup.
I'm not sure what was going on with this particular viewing - like
some radical upconvert/noise reduction/unsharp mask feature on the
flatscreen TV. Later I tried to show a film archivist on his
flatscreen and it looked like film again.. Also I saw the HD version
on TBS and it also had grain and looked like film.
It was unsettling to everybody in the room not just me.
