An international HD-DVD version is likely as this was a joint Miramax/Paramount Vantage production.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I'm very interested in seeing this movie, and I hope it paves the way for more Coen Brothers movies in HD.
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal
, Out of Africa, and Traffic.

This one merits a blind-buy for me. A Coen Brothers noir-ish crime film (I loved Blood Simple), overwhelming positive word of mouth and the critical praise.

My number one film of the year, and a rare title that is a must-buy on release date for me. Roger Deakins' cinematography should look spectacular on Blu-Ray!

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Gee, I hope so. Otherwise, it's films like this that make me want to go purple.

Very cool. The release date is actually sooner than I expected. One of the best films I have seen in a long time. I can't wait to see it again!

My sentiments exactly. I just saw this at the start of December and it was instantly one of my top films of 2007. I came out initially thinking that this was a movie I thought I should have liked more than I did. I played back so many scenes over and over in my head that this film climbed up into my top 5.

Maybe it'll get changed when it wins a bunch of Oscars, but I doubt it.

And why do they have the wrong heads above the names? I know they can't change the name order because of contract agreements, so why not photoshop Jones on the left and Brolin on the right to match?

Oh, it'll get changed alright... they'll manage to squeeze in "Winner of xxx Academy Awards, including xxxxxx" in big bold letters.

Since the Oscars are on February 24, they'll probably have to settle for a sticker touting any wins rather than actually changing the art (or they'll have nothing at all about Oscar wins).

Surely they wouldn't put out the disc with the wrong names/pictures...though that's a horrible cover any way you look at it.

Why not? Happens all the time.

Great flick. I had the (ahem) fortune of watching it on DVD a few weeks back, but am looking forward to it in HD.
