Christopher Guest Collection

Overview

Christopher Guest has made his mark employing the tightly structured but highly improvised "mockumentary" style, first perfected by Rob Reiner in This Is Spinal Tap.

Each is presented in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Since he turned his amplifier up to "eleven" as Nigel Tufnel in 1984's This Is Spinal Tap, Christopher Guest's genius for improvisational cinema has fueled a string of off-kilter comedy hits that stand as instant classics. The Christopher Guest Box Set collects the films Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind, all written and directed by the man known successively and affectionately as Corky St. Clair, Harlan Pepper, and Alan Barrows. Guest has become something of an industry cult figure, returning to a familiar ensemble cast Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey, Ed Begley Jr., et al. and allowing them the creative latitude to improvise freely. The result has been a remarkably consistent and compellingly low-key series of comedies that amount to no less than a new school, for which these are the three essential texts. On each, the deleted scenes and other DVD extras afford a graduate education. Without all that tiresome reading, writing, and tuition, of course.

    HE IS A GENIUS

    If you love funny movies buy these ones. I saw Best in Show by accident a few years back. I fell madly in love with it. So I went and saw A Mighty Wind when it came out to theaters. Then I rented Wating for Gufman. These are three of my favorite movies of all time.
