“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

First off hopefully everyone picked up a copy of the newly rematered and re-edited Samuel Fuller film, The Big Red One. I have the original theatrical version (the one that the studio cut), but this new version has an extended 40min of footage and is closer to the way the great late Fuller would have wanted it. There are also some great extras on the disc. All this being said, if you have never heard Fuller talk and speak about his experiences, this is a must. What an entertaining man.
Also extremely excited about the Errol Morris box set slated for release July 26th. The box set will include his best work, Gates of Heaven, Vernon, Florida, and The Thin Blue Line. If you have not seen any of his documentries, these are the three to see. This was origianlly scheduled to be released in February, but I guess something came up. Visit his website you have the time it is really well done.
One more bit of dvd news. One of my favorite directors will be releasing 2 of his lesser known films on dvd. This man is Werner Herzog and the films are Land of Silence and Darkness and Signs of Life. Both will be released on July 5th. If you are unfamilar with Herzog, first get the Herzog/Kinski box set. The films included in that set are some of my favorite films, but these two are great works. Check out his personal website for more info on upcoming projects.
