4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Boxed Set to Own...., 12 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lukas Moodysson Presents (4 Disc Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
My dropping of a star is purely and solely down the last film in the set 'A Hole in My Heart', which along with all 3 other films, I have reviewed here, on Amazon, under their separate titles and why I'm not going to go into each one here individually. I'm going to concentrate on the box set itself, instead.

The reason why I say that it's a good set to own as it's a neat and convenient way of buying all his (up to 2004) feature films, as 'Show Me Love' and 'A Hole in my Heart' are either difficult to find, especially as region 2, or are expensive. If you can get a decent secondhand set, like I did, for the price I paid - and still is (£20 apprx), then that's £5 a movie, of course.

'Lilya4 Ever' and 'Together' are both quite commonly available and that may be a more cost effective way of getting two of the best ones. In hindsight, I wouldn't have wanted to bother with A Hole in.... but that's the way it is. For whatever I said about this film, I'm glad I at least tried to watch it....

The outer box itself is nicely made, with substantial enough card all round but what is really great are all the montaged photo stills from the films, providing a colourful tapestry. There's a separate disc holder inside the folding main part for each DVD, with yet more stills as a background.

Extras: I almost never try these out, but here, as listed (not tried) are: Show Me Love - talk by the director. Together - trailer, filmography, text interview. Lilya4 Ever - Guardian interview with the director, director's trailer reel, UNICEF film 'More Precious than Gold' and an Amnesty International appeal video. A Hole in My Heart - the making of, director's Master Class and a trailer.

Hopefully, this will steer those who know that they want Moodysson in their lives and on their TVs and how best to buy his largely excellent films.
