    Has anyone gotten their hands on this disc yet? The release date was last Tuesday, but my order from Amazon has not been shipped yet. And the few other retailers I checked did not have it in stock either...
    Amores Perros is one of the best films of 2000, IMHO. Needless to say, I've been eagerly awaiting its DVD release! I'd also love to read a review of the disc, if someone could point me in the right direction... [​IMG]
    Cheers.

    Argh! So I just have rotten luck then... [​IMG] But thanks for the reply!
    Have you by any chance listened to the commentary track yet? It is listed in the special features as a "Production Commentary Track," and I've been wondering what that means exactly. I'm assuming that it's not a screen-specific director's commentary, or is it?
    Cheers.

    I ordered this sight-unseen based on the reviews, and was extraordinarily impressed with the film and the disc. When I saw "Sterling," a no-name distributor listed, I was wary, but the disc looks and sounds perfect and it has a number of extras I haven't looked at: trailers, production commentary track (I don't know by who), deleted scenes, etc. A full-blown SE that isn't labeled as such. Great disc, and a must-own even for those who haven't seen the movie.

    The "Production Commentary" is in Spanish, but has English subtitles.
    There's also nothing on the disc to indicate that this is an anamorphic transfer, but it is.

    It was released this week. An extraordinary film, but I was so wiped out after watching it in the theater over the summer that I may hold off for a little while on a purchase.
    Studio Entertainment used to be Sterling; curious why this Lion's Gate Release wasn't put out by Universal or Trimark?
    Glad to know the transfer is 16x9, though. Either the box never indicates it or when it does -- like with Quadrophenia -- it does so erroneously.

    Can anyone confirm the differences between the Canadian (Columbia TriStar) release and the American (Sterling) release? Is it just the packaging?
