Kevin,

Thanks for the review. I have this in my Netflix queue, as I have been meaning to check it out. Your review only serves to pique my interest further.

As I said in my thread about this movie in the SD area, I really love it. I saw it in the theater a couple months back. It is deeply philosophical and requires a lot of intense thought on the part of the viewer (and I still do not understand it completely), which I think is at least part of why it hasn't been too warmly received. But it's a great piece that will reward those who are willing to commit to it. I'm looking forward to getting to analyze it further upon repeat viewings with the Blu-ray. It's one of the most beautifully shot movies I've ever seen too, and especially since Coopola shot it hi-def, I can't wait to see what it looks like on Blu for myself. Thanks for the review -- it is disappointing that the one featurette is nonanamorphic, but there seems to be some meat to these bonus features which is more than I was expecting. The music one in particular should be interesting.

i watched the first 30 minutes or so earlier today.
i thought the picture looked as sharp and clear and perfect as any hd disc
i've seen yet.
about as close to reference as i think it can be.

:laugh:

I watched this last night, and I can completely understand your reaction. Was it merely a love story as I've heard more than one person say? I hope not, as there are certainly more straight-forward and convincing ways to tell one than this. In fact, I'm sure there is more to this movie than that even though I can understand why that is all some can pick up on. Alas, I am in the unenviable position of, while sensing there is more to this movie than that, not really understanding what it is.
