Holy crap, this is blindingly fast. I've given up hoping for it to ever show up at the local theater, and now the sting of disappointment doesn't hurt so much.

Waaaay upstate New York; I'm practically sitting on the Canadian border. We make 'rural' look like a bustling metropolis.

I really want to see this. The Manor Theatre here in Charlotte is playing it but I doubt I will ever have the time to make it down there. Guess I'll just get the DVD.

Yes..but i bet it's a damn sight closer to you from where i live

It's not scheduled to be released here in the UK until March 5th....i'm very keen on seeing it, i have to say, but i may just opt to wait the extra few weeks to buy the R1 DVD.

Anyway if nothing else the actual title did impart a new bit of useless trivia for my brain to amass

I finally tracked down a theatre to see this in today and I was really glad i did even though the theatre was pretty crappy. I am curious how this will look on dvd and the sooner the better.

It's so lame that a good movie like this is hard to see because of a very limited release, but they have no problem showing typical crap like Paycheck all over the place every friggin week.

Really looking forward to this release. Not seen the film yet but thought Amores Perros was outstanding.

I just saw it tonight. I want it in my collection, but i dunno if 2 months is enough time. Might have to hold off on it. Far too hard to watch more than once in a short time.

This movie has burned itself into my memory.

I hope the featurettes are good, since theres not much else on there.

I saw it tonight as well but won't be buying it. I absolutely loved it, but as one of the posters above said, it's not something I'd want to watch much again.

I've seen this twice. It's one of my favorite films of 2003. I will definitely buy this, but it's a shame the extra features are so sparse.

That sure was quick.

Cool, though, cause it was a very good film.

Hope it adds a few more things before the release.

This is also one of my favorite movies of the past year, and hopefully Ms. Watts will be nominated for best actress Oscar...but anyway I'm not dissapointed by the lack of extras because this is a kind of movie where I like to see as is, without any extras telling me how or why they made it this way or that way IMO.

Hopefully for the people who have not seen it but want to, will get a chance to go, it is one of most powerful movies I've seen in a while with riviting raw emotional performances.
