I don't get the sense from that user review that the writer is very technically knowledgeable.
Kind of like how it bothers me when reading a reviewer criticize someone elses review.

every review even if you dont agree with the way they present it, brings something to the table.
And after having just read the review, It didnt read as sycophantic at all.
And he even says
I'll warn you right now; this isn't a box set to test the Lynchian waters....this is strictly for fans of David's work
indicating that these movies arent for everyone.
true he doesnt delve to much into the technical aspects of the P&Q but that doesnt mean the review doesnt offer the reader some good reasons to consider buying this set.

That wasn't a "review" per se. It's just some schmoe posting about the neat thing he bought. It should be taken with a grain of salt, just like any other user feedback. Some of these people will be knowledgeable, and others will not. This one did not strike me as knowledgeable. YMMV.

Blu-ray.com just posted a more extensive review of the German set (w/ screenshots for all three titles).

As much as I want two of the three titles in HD, I think I'll wait.

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

That review didn't excite me as much as I was hoping. Sounds like a set I'd buy for around $40.

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

I'm burnt out on Lynch, but I might buy Eraserhead if the reviews are positive. I'm wary of anything Universal.

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

I'll get Eraserhead, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks and Lost Highway if these are region-free.

Or, once my lazy ass gets a region-free player, I'll just get them anyway.

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

Lynch is doing his own work on Eraserhead, so I think that disc is skippable.

Why? I thought the DVD he supervised looked fine. I'd rather have him in control than whichever DNR-happy folks have been muddying most of Universal's catalog releases.

I think you misunderstood. This is not the disc on which the version Lynch is working on appears.

I'm sure he's planning to do his own work on most of these titles, but at the rate he works I suspect it'll be a long ways off. I hope his version of Eraserhead comes out this year or next, though. I'd hold off if he gave any indication.

Sorry, bit out of the loop on Lynch's activities.

Considering the DVD of Eraserhead was released six years after its planned debut (with 2000 still written on the packaging), I'd say that's a safe bet. Has anyone seen the German Blu-ray?

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

I have the German BD of Eraserhead and it does look nice. I spent most of the time watching the textures and other things I could never see before. It also includes a PAL version of the documentary on the Eraserhead DVD.

(Click for larger):
Spoiler:



Up for pre-order at Amazon UK. Strangely enough, when I preordered this, the total price was just under 44 pounds, even though the pre-s&h price is 48 pounds and change.

Anyways, kind of torn on this box; bring on Fire Walk with Me, Lost Highway and Dune, but I already have Blue Velvet, thought that, despite the visuals, sound and atmosphere, Eraserhead was a bit of a slog to get through and can take or leave Wild at Heart (it does contain some of Lynch's best scenes, but it so relentlessly wallows in ugliness, which kind of overshadow the highlights for me).

I'm curious to give Eraserhead and Wild another spin, but I'll wait for reviews before I make a final decision. On the other hand, it comes out on June 4th, so maybe I'll just consider it an early bday present to myself.

I'm guessing you're ordering to an address outside the UK. When you order from Amazon UK to a non-UK address, the VAT (Value-Added Tax, which applies only to UK citizens) is subtracted from your order total- it's fairly substantial.

Re: David Lynch Foreign Releases

Is there any information so far as to region coding for this set?

Thanks

You are correct in that the VAT is removed, but in my past experiences with Amazon UK, the price that is set when you add it to your cart is the same price you pay at checkout, only converted to US dollars, plus s&h; never had it drop before I paid. I imagine they'll do the final conversion when it's ready to ship (think this is my first preorder at Amazon UK). But so far, 43.60 pounds (roughly $69 and change) shipped for this is a pretty good deal.

Though I am curious why Universal didn't throw in Mulholland Drive since they distributed it in theaters and on home video (at least in the US, not sure who holds the UK rights)--plus I think the Studio Canal/Optimum version is OOP, or going that way (I think--think--I managed to snag a copy of that from HMV, but I ordered it over a month ago and the order status is changing ever so slowly...).
