I’ve been getting into DVDs lately, in anticipation for when I buy my Playstation 2 in (hopefully) October. I’ve even bought a couple of disks (“Rushmore-Criterion Edition” and “The Matrix”) and ordered some more that will ship in late August (“Magnolia” and “Boogie Nights” special editions). But it vexes me how some classic films are not yet out on DVD and nobody has any idea when they’ll be released, by whom, or what, if any, special features they will have. The one that bums me the most is “Withnail and I.” This is probably one of my top 5 films ever, and it would be perfect for DVD. The sound could really use some cleaning up, so that all the wonderful dialogue can be heard, and I could dream up tons of supplementary material for it, especially commentary tracks from director Bruce Robinson and actors Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. There was a tenth anniversary VHS released in 1997 and I think it was even rereleased in the theatres, but no DVD yet. If anyone knows anything at all, please let me know. Until then, I’ll just have to keep mumbling the dialogue to myself and laughing, drawing all manner of funny stares.
