Can't find a review of the DVD of this Kurosawa film. How are the picture, sound, and extras? Why does it cost so much?

...for a review, go here:

...unfortunately yet another example of a pretty damn great film (SovScope 70mm, AR 2.20:1) by a great filmmaker that didn't receive the anamorphic transfer it deserves ... there should be a law against such cavalier treatment! (...said the bitter old man, who remembered seeing this very beautiful, brilliantly photographed movie projected onto the giant Cinerama screen...)

Yeah, I'm disappointed too. It's great to have it on dvd, but I expected a better treatment (and maybe more than a trailer as an extra) - especially for the premium cost. In any case, this is a wonderful film, one of my favorite kurosawas.
