    Tried to do a search on this film, but nothing came up. But I was wondering if there has been any new news if and when the next batch of Greenaway's film are slated for Special Edition status. "Prospero's Books" is the DVD I most want to include in my video collection and any rumoured news would be much appreciated.

    This is such a dense film, it seems perfect for an SE. Actually this would apply to most Greenaway films [​IMG] There is also a one hour film I have seen which I believe is called Prospero's Library (?) that goes into more detail on the contents of the individual books, it would make a great bonus asset.

    BTW, an animorphic R1 Belly of an Architect comes out next Tuesday! Finallly!

    I don't think the BFI has any immediate plans to release more Greenaway movies. However, the following site may be of interest.

    A propos of nothing, I've got the book of Prospero's Books signed by Peter Greenaway. The book certainly makes the film far more comprehensible.

    As far as I can see the only bonus feature on Belly of an Architect is the trailer. I am just happy there is finally an animorphic, or even widescreen version of it for that matter. The laserdisc I have enjoyed for years is full frame. There are still some pretty big holes of titles not available on DVD in the Greenaway filmography. I would love to see some of the television work released.
