Subject:        Special DVD of Kurosawa's Ran and Extras

In a moment of major insanity, I splurged and bought an Amazon.com
special edition of Kurosawa which includes the BBC doc, a minor film,
and a new edition of Ran. It all comes in a very nice box with posters
and other stuff (some might call it junk).  Even thought the whole thing
is way over-priced and not really worth it, the Ran DVD is quite
extraordinary.  It is a new transfer, MUCH better than the good
Criterion one (anyone like to buy my copy of the Criterion?), and among
the many extras are two excellent audio commentaries.  Perhaps this new
DVD of Ran will be released independently and more cheaply.  If so, I'd
highly recommend it.

Also, broke down and bought a JVC all region progressive scan DVD player
for 329.00 It's totally worth it. Details available, if anyone is
interested (offline).

Best,
Richard
