The complete short works of Jan Svankmajer? i wonder if they are really complete. If so, this set is probably something for me
I'd say it's comprehensive in its coverage of Svankmajer's shorts, every one is covered from The Last Trick (1964) to Food (1992) spread over 2 dual layer discs.
A third disc, also dual layer is jam packed with extras such as work done for other directors, documentaries including one made for Channel 4 by the Quay brothers, interviews etc.
Also included is a booklet with notes on each of the shorts.
All in all, an excellent package and highly recommended.
Could you list the interesting extras on the UK Science of Sleep DVD, Trevor? I'd like to compare them to the German release.
Audio commentary by Writer/Director Michel Gondry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Gael Garca Bernal
The Making of The Science of Sleep
Featurette on Lauri Faggioni, Creator of Animals and Accessories
Linda Serbu 'Rescue Me' Music Video
Probably the same as the German release but I thought the "making of" was particularly entertaining and enlightening.
Taxidermia was released by Tartan Video in the UK, extras include 'Making of' documentary, Production notes and Trailers.
