...well, I love this movie (and Guy Madden's Careful, too!) - the transfers of both films are excellent, the extras are generous and interesting ... but... this is very much a matter of 'acquired taste' (there are no corrupt cops, rabid gangsters, gruesome serial killers, slimy aliens, huge explosions, and such)... if you have the possibility, I suggest you rent first!

I like it ... but I don't know what to say about it (& I didn't know anything about it when I bought it).

As Hendrik says....

great DVDs. Careful has a gorgeous transfer, a good commentary track, & a very good documentary narrated By Tom Waits. Tales also has a great transfer, two short films, and a commentrary track.

Both highly recommended!

Here's my windy, overwrought, faux-pretentious review of CAREFUL:

Contains mucho spoilers of the first act, so don't say I didn't warn ya!
