Criterion released two versions of Fanny and Alexander. One version was a two disc set with the theatrical version and a second disc of extras. The other version was 5 discs and added the television version and a making-of documentary.

The funny thing is that its Criterion #300. When F For Fake was #288. Could there be 11 more unannounced Criterions coming out between now and May 10th? Perhaps.

All right, I loved Rushmore.
Found the Royal Tenenbaums only so-so (blasphemy I know to some but that's my opinion)
Enjoyed the trailer to Life Aquatic but haven't seen it yet.
How does this movie stack up to the other two?

Missed this one in theaters so I'm definately getting this release! And it's a Criterion to boot!

Well Life Aquatic felt similar to TRT, but much more boring and uninteresting (not that I thought TRT was great - it's "alright").
Essentially TLA is quirky for the sake of being quirky and Wes Anderson has really worn out his theme and styles - and needs to stop repeating himself.
It's a definite time for change.

I'd love to see 'Lost in Translation' get the Criterion treatment!

I'll bet the reversible cover is illustrated by Wes' brother Eric Anderson. That would be great since Eric did the other two Wes Anderson Criterion covers.

Fargo SE also has a reversible cover. I like the inside cover much better than the one that was showing when I bought it. I hope more DVDs will do this because it appeases those of us who prefer the more 'artsy' covers without doing away with the more marketable covers, so no sales are lost.

Would've bought this either way, but even more excited that this is going to get the Criterion treatment.

I see a lot of people confused with the covers. Let me explain. I don't have any inside knowledge, but I have Criterion's The Royal Tennenbaums release, and it looks to follow in the same footsteps, with the only difference of a single-disc release. This single-disc will feature the same basic art as the 2-disc slipcover, and the single-disc will have a reversible cover with the same art as the 2-disc with the slipcover off. So we have not seen this art yet, but it would be similar to other Criterion covers of Anderson's films.

my guess would be that the reversible cover's artwork would be by anderson's brother with similar artwork (see the little guy in the corner of the cover at dvdanswers).

i am hoping for a CC release of bottle rocket as well.

Well, I loved both Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums. I was disappointed with the Life Aquatic. It's definitely in the same style but it's also less funny. It doesn't really all come together like the other two to me and it doesn't work as well. I'd still say that I liked it, but it's more average than it is great. I guess I'd consider it about the same as your opinion of TRT.

I absolutely loved Life Aquatic myself, although it's not for everyone.

Good news, haven't seen the film yet (loved TRT and Rushmore) but it's a blind buy for sure.

Yeah, I've had the film on my wishlist since it hit theaters (and I never got around to seeing it), so now that it's getting the Criterion treatment...it's definitely up there with my most anticipated releases of the year.

I hope this is the case; I've always found Eric Anderson's artwork to be quite charming.

Anybody know just what kind of commentary there is here? Some of the wording says "commentary on select scenes". Does that mean only a few minutes only? Lots of scenes, so it works out to an hour etc?

Yeah, that's the list I was referring to, the "select scenes".

None of that really makes this disk a "must buy" for me, but a commentary would put me over the top. This'd be a blind buy for me.
