Nice! I was just thinking today that this was overdue for a Criterion release.

I’m assuming the Lynch/Hurt interviews on both the Criterion and the StudioCanal releases are the same ones from the Lime Green DVD box set.

Doesn’t look like there’s too much new here in terms of features. Just the AFI recording. It will be great to see the gorgeous B&W cinematography of the film in all its glory though. Too bad there’s never been a whiff of any deleted scenes still in existence.

This just leaves The Straight Story and INLAND EMPIRE as the last two without a US Blu Ray release... (BTW, The Straight Story is on Disney Plus! Maybe it will get rediscovered by a new generation once they run out of Marvel and Star Wars movies to watch.)

I wonder what the hold-up is with "Inland". He could easily put that on Criterion. "Straight Story" continues to be his most poorly treated movie as far as all levels of release - theater and after.
I DON'T FEEL GOOD!!!!!
