Seeing as how several of the films actors have gone on to much acclaim recently with their films (Sean Penn just winning an Oscar and being among Hollywood's most respected actors, Jim Caviezel being in Mel Gibson's massively successful "The Passion of the Christ", Adrien Brody winning an Oscar for "The Pianist", and John C. Reilly being a much bigger star now, and also many of the other actors who are still big names around Hollywood) and that the film hasn't much in the way of a special edition, I would think that it qualifies for such a release. Many parts of the film that were originally suppose to be in were cut, such as Billy Bob Thornton's +3 hour narration for the film, Bill Pullman, Lukas Haas, Viggo Mortensen, and Mickey Rourke scenes that were filmed and later cut, and that the original cut of the film was close to 6 hours, it makes you think what could I have been. I think this is one of the more underrated films of the last 10 years, and had the unfortunate chance of coinciding with Saving Private Ryan the same year. I don't think the film is for everyone's taste, and people seemed to be split in their opinions on it. It certainly has many technical merits to it, such as John Toll's Oscar Nominated Cinematography that is some of the most beautiful I have seen in a film, Hans Zimmer's haunting and powerful score which is perhaps his best. Add to it the fact that Terrence Malick hadn't made a film in as many years when he made this. Its difficult to weigh in on the performances. You can say they are good in some places, but no one actor is given much screen time with the focus shifting from one to another. These are just my thoughts on the film itself. The previous DVD releases have all been great in terms of audio/video, but had no supplements at all. I would hope Fox might revisit it someday, and put a special edition together that could give us both the theatrical version, and some kind of extended version with many of the cut scenes put back in. They could include commentaries (one from Malick would be amazing, but him being the reclusive type, I wouldn't count on it), interviews, deleted scenes, comparisons between the film and the novel, documentaries, and so on. No plans seem to have been made so far as I've heard, but anything could change. I just think that since they put massive amounts of effort, time, and money into the Alien Quadrilogy and many of their other releases that they could do this film some justice. These are just my thoughts on it, and I think many would agree.
