I'm happy with my original release. Bonus content does little for me anymore. That being said, those who have not picked up the film on BD yet should go after this release, as it looks pretty solid.
"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

Hadn't gotten around to buying this yet--now I'll have options. Either I spring for the new edition or, if the old one's price drops significantly, I'll grab that instead.

If I was in your shoes, I'd go for the SE unless there was an incredible sale on the first one. As it stands, I've already got the first release so there's no chance that I'll rebuy it already.
