Peter Greenaway's A Zed & Two Noughts: 2/12/08

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000Y14U6A/...89&camp=211189

It's being put out by Zeitgeist Films - they did a good job with The Corporation, haven't seen any of their other releases. DVD will include Greenaway commentary.

EDIT: Zeitgeist is also releasing Greenaway's The Draughtsman's Contract on the same day:

Hopefully "Thief, Cook" isn't too far off.

or 'Prospero's Books' or 'The Baby of Macon' or 'Tulse Luper Trilogy'

come on, more Greenaway is a good thing.

Anchor Bay released that on DVD many years ago. It's out of print now, but I'm sure used copies are available on the secondary market.

It was cropped to 1.85:1, if I recall correctly.

Greenaway has such bad video karma. It's a shame. His movies deserve better.

Well, "A Zed & Two Noughts" is also a rerelease. I own it (and "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover") but would be will to rebuy for more extras or better transfers.

your recollection is correct it was cropped

as for deserving better, yes he does, alot... the British Film Institute hasn't released much to rectify the missing films on DVD either.

I know...but, the transfer isn't the best and it costs a ton of money.

I was pretty happy with the 'Early Fims/The Falls' set on Zeitgeist, so I assume I'll be dumping my old Fox Lorber sets of both of these.

Hopesully this is gonna be a continuing series of remasters. I'd love to get rid of my pan and scan laserdiscs of 'Prospero's Books' and 'Drowning BY Numbers.'
