After many years of waiting by Robert Altman fans, the director’s last remaining epic not to get the DVD treatment is finally here.
Just announced from The Criterion Collection is a November 12th release for Short Cuts, which will get the full two-disc treatment.
Presented in a new 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 track, extras include a new “Reflections on Short Cuts” 25-minute interview with Robert Altman and Tim Robbins, the “Luck, Trust, and Ketchup: Robert Altman in Carver Country” 90-minute documentary, an isolated music score, deleted scenes, BBC TV’s Moving Pictures 50-minute audio interview with Raymond Carver, an advertising gallery, theatrical trailers and a booklet reprint of Vintage Books’ “Short Cuts” companion collection of short stories.
The only thing not included? The original audio commentary from the previous Criterion laserdisc.
Oh well!
