    According to DVDFile.com, Steve Buscemi's Trees Lounge is getting reissued next month. However, Artisan is repotedly rehashing the same non-anamorphic transfer. Not only is the current DVD not enhanced for 16x9, but the picture is quite soft and the colors are washed out.
    This film deserves better treatment, although I realize that it's probably too inconsequential a title for the studio to justify requisitioning a new transfer.

    I'm actually suprised it's gonna get a rerelease. It's a great little film, too badBuscemi was'nt regonized for it more, it was one of his best. Doubt we'll ever see a Anamorphic version.

    So what is included in the "rerelease"? It had a commentary and some other extras (the music video for Hayden's excellent track "Tree's Lounge").

    Why rerelease? What changed?

    I think it's getting a price drop. Maybe new Cover Art, that's all

    Yeah, Dave's correct. It's part of a package of films getting the same "treatment" (i.e. no treatment at all). Here's the original paragraph from the DVDFile.com article:
