    What do you consider the best DVD releases of 2003 (thus far, anyway)?

    For me:

    The Adventures of Antoine Doinel box set (Criterion)
    Fassbinder's BRD Trilogy box set (Criterion)
    Bergman's "Faith" Trilogy box set (Criterion)
    Three Colors Trilogy box set (Miramax)
    The Adventures of Indiana Jones box set (Paramount)
    Warner Legends box set (Warner)

    ...and quite a few individual releases...
