Life Aquatic DVD

Post by WillisDrummond » Mon Mar 21, 2005 5:19 pm

Save your pennies for May 12th! The Life Aquatic Criterion DVD will be released!
Special features include:
-Ten Deleted Scenes
-Interview with the Cast and Crew with Behind-the-Scenes Footage
-Select Scene Commentary with Director Wes Anderson
-Ten David Bowie Songs performed by Brazilian recording artist Seu Jorge
-Interview with composer and Devo member Mark Mothersbaugh
-Mondo Monda - Italian TV Interview
-This Is An Adventure - A Making of A Documentary by Albert Maysles
-Fold-Out Insert with cutaway of The Belafonte with Eric Anderson's original illustrations
-Behind-the-Scenes photos and original artwork
-Theatrical Trailer
-Intern Video Journal by Actor and Real Life Intern Matthew Gray Gubler

I know, I know, this work isn't on the same level as Rushmore or Tenenbaums, story-wise, but for fans of Anderson's style, it's gonna be a field day. I can't believe it's going to have an interview with Mothersbaugh!

I really like Wes Anderson/this film, and Criterion sets tend to be top notch, so: hooray!

Fantastic Mr. Fox is going to be animated by Henry Selick, too, or so Animation Magazine tells us! EXCITING!

I can't wait to watch the deleted scenes. They'll probably be full of the kind of humor that made the movie good, but to the extreme. "Not if I see you first, sonny," and the pans across the set-piece ship that deliberately show that the ship is a setpiece. God that movie was awesome.

Same here. Since I have an 11 month old daughter, it's difficult for me to go to the theatre. I tend to catch everything on DVD now. Can't wait to see this one!

A roommate of mine bought it. It's got a nice cover by Anderson's brother, as usual...

However, there's some inconsistancies with the post you put up Willis...it's weird. It's only 1 disc, but that disc says "Disc One: The Movie" as if there was another with special features? Also, the interview with Mothersbaugh isn't on there, nor is a lot of that stuff...perhaps there's a special edition my roommate didn't see?

BUT, one good piece of news is that the commentary is on the full movie, and not just select scenes...the commentary is with Wes Anderson, and the co-writer who is clearly in love with Anderson. It's recorded in the resteraunt where they wrote the thing. That's pretty neat.

Joey- Your Roomie pick up the regular or the Criterion edition? All the really neat stuff is on the Criterion one.

It's true, Joey, there is a one-disc and two-disc edition, both put out by the Criterion Collection. The Mothersbaugh interview, which is terrific, is on disc two, as is the Maysles documentary. I haven't listened to the commentary yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Also on disc two is an "interview" with Wes and Noah Baumbach on an "Italian talk show." It's like the "Peter Bradley Show" on the Tenenbaums DVD. Very funny, in a Spinal Tap-sort of way.
