    According to dvdfile, Living in Oblivion will be coming on Feb 11th. Hopefully it will have some extras. I know Tom DiCillo does do commentaries.

    After this, all I need is Johnny Suede and Double Whammy (streeting 12/31) to complete my Dicillo collection.

    Oh Happy day.

    I was just about to put this onto DVD-R since IFC was airing it letterboxed. Glad I waited. This is one good film.

    Excellent! This along with Glengarry Glen Ross were two of the last VHS I needed on DVD, along with Back To The Future of course. There goes the VCR!

    Just picked this up yesterday at a well-known B&M chain. What's surprising is that 3 of the chain's stores all had copies out this weekend, but only 1 or 2 copies per. Hopefully this one won't be hard for everyone to find on 2/11...

    Haven't watched it yet but looking forward to it-got rid of my VHS copy last year.

    It's got a director's commentary, one 2 min. deleted scene (cover actually says deleted "scenes"), a 16 minute interview with DiCillo and Buscemi from May of 2002 at a film event in NYC (pretty interesting), Widescreen only (of course), a few trailers from other films, and 2.0 sound only.

    Picture looked the best I've seen it so far compared to the VHS and the IFC broadcast-sound was good but the rears were totally inactive.

    I love the flick so I didn't mind spending $20...

    Yep-the disc lists Anamorphic. I don't have a 16:9 set so I can't say for sure, but the specs list it.

    I kept looking for Money Pit early too, thinking that might be as hard to find as Predator 2 apparently is, but luckily BB had about 8 copies.
