I saw this in the theater and I thought it was quite good, although I'm not sure if I'll buy it. But I'll definitely give it at least a rental for Dogville Confessions, which is a very welcome special feature.
Koreandvds.com has had a Region 0 2-disc set of this for sale for about the same price for quite some time. I've been waiting for a Region 1 announcement like this before I finally decided whether to buy the Region 1 version or the Region 0. Since the Region 1 version will also have "Dogville Confessions", I may wait.
Loved this film, I bought the Korean DVD months ago because there was no way it would be released in a cinema near me. I would like to see the "Dogville Confessions" so hopefully it will be on the R4 release and I can give it a rental.
It does have a "Confession Box" feature which runs about 18mins but Dogville Confessions is a 1hr doc which as imdb says "The footage covers everything from idea to premiere". I think it is actually on the Danish DVD.
Yes, the Danish 2-Disc has the full 60 minuttes documentary of Dogville Confessions. This is the best version available at the moment. However, you´ll need a multi-region player to benefit from this release.
Hmm, good point, Mark_vdH--this is a three hour movie we're talking about! However, it would be very surprising to see a shorter cut released on DVD just to avoid putting it on 2 discs, considering that the full 3 hour version played in US theaters. The info that DVDFile got, presumably from a press release, probably just didn't include any mention of it being a 2 disc set. I guess weirder things have happened with some releases, but a shorter-cut/1-disc scenario seems far less likely than a simple omission of the 2-disc info from the press release.
Rich, according to IMDB, a few countries (they mention Italy and Australia) got a theatrical cut that was about 135 minutes long, cut down from the original three hour length with Von Trier's approval (I can't vouch for the accuracy of any of that info). However, we got the full three hour cut in the US. I saw it in the theater about the same time you did, in the last month-and-a-half/two months.
