It reminds me of the days of Laserdisc. It was very much a niche format in the U.S., so prices were much higher than if you bought the same film on VHS. On the one hand, the best Laserdisc releases had supplements and, often, extra books, CD's, lithographs, etc. that made them feel special. On the other hand, unless you had disposable income, Laserdisc purchases were reserved for special occasions. As expensive as this release seems, it's still less than what you would have paid for a comparable release on Laserdisc and also has image and sound quality that could have only been dreamt of back in the 80's-90's. While I miss the heyday of cheap DVD and Blu-ray releases, I've resigned myself to the reality of the marketplace that can no longer count on massive sales of physical media. Those of us who prefer physical media are dinosaurs. I'm just glad that we're still able to get great physical releases of niche films like Suspiria and freaking Criterion releases of John Waters films.
