I'm not going to review the film because if you're looking at this you already know what it's about! (or go to imdb.com) Instead I'll review the DVDs..... Just watched this new edition, released in UK 6 Feb 2006, last night on 80" screen. Looks and sounds fantastic! No cigarette burns (as per old R2 & R4) or any film blemishes or artifacts at all. Anamorphic 2.35:1. Daylight scenes looks fabulous, but in some of the darker scenes (mainly in their house) there is some grain but not distractingly so. The DTS is very good, extremely wide ranging and very deep when it needs to be - gave my M&K 350 sub a good workout. Marilyn Manson & Rammstein sounded excellent as well as Angelo Badalamenti's score. No sync problems ala the German version. The menu's are moving and very "David Lynch" and include a 'who's who' which when you select a character name it plays a small clip of them from the film. The second disc totals 90+mins and has 2 interviews with David Lynch 2005 & 1996, and 1996 on set interviews with Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, and Robert Loggia. A modern making of, a 1996 featurette (which features the rest of the 1996 David Lynch interview)the teaser trailer and the October Film Distributers Theatrical trailer (which seems slightly out of focus?) It comes in a digipak with a clear slipcase which has the writing on it (ala the first R1 version of SAW) and is even reversible!!!
