FINALLY! Although I dont like the cover art that much for them, it is a godsend to finally have these masterpieces available soon on DVD. The VHS for Miller's Crossing is better I think...shows the desolate nature of Tom better.

I agree that the VHS art is better, but I'm not in a complaining mood. These are two of my most-awaited movies. My wife ran downstairs yesterday when she heard me screaming, not realizing that all I had done was looked at these on thedigitalbits.com. I sent out joyous emails to family & friends letting them know as well. I've agonized over my old VHS tapes several times this past year, watching them with a sick feeling in my stomach, waiting for just some sort of reliable news of a DVD release. Seeing that cover art yesterday was truly a spiritual event for me.

I must say that my opinion differs greatly from several of the above opinions. These are two of the most beautiful covers that I've ever seen for a DVD. They almost look like Criterion covers.

I like the covers as well. I wonder if we'd be hearing complaints if Criterion were putting these out with the same covers? Posted Image

I like the covers too, and I can't wait for Miller's Crossing. I'll buy Barton Fink, too, sight unseen. Just get 'em out.

Sweet! It'll be a long wait for May 20th.

Anyone seen a Miller's Crossing DVD cover image, similar to the size of this Barton Fink one?

Here are some of the extras that will be on the R2, so I would imagine the R1 will be identical
