Revengers Tragedy

( 2 )

Overview

Repo Man and Sid and Nancy director Alex Cox may not get quite the attention today that he did while at the prime of his career in the mid-'80s, but for those in the know he's still cranking out some interesting, decidedly non-mainstream films. Though his modernized updating of 17th-century playwright Thomas Middleton's dark tale may not have received the attention it deserved stateside, Fantoma Films has still seen fit to release a surprisingly feature-packed version of the film to DVD.

Overview

Repo Man and Sid and Nancy director Alex Cox may not get quite the attention today that he did while at the prime of his career in the mid-'80s, but for those in the know he's still cranking out some interesting, decidedly non-mainstream films. Though his modernized updating of 17th-century playwright Thomas Middleton's dark tale may not have received the attention it deserved stateside, Fantoma Films has still seen fit to release a surprisingly feature-packed version of the film to DVD. The feature is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen and it looks great, and viewers will no doubt be excited to note the inclusion of a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack as well. Joined by popular U.K. comic/star Eddie Izzard, Cox provides audio commentary that is both absorbing and informative. The two have a great rapport, and it's obvious that they had a good time working together. In addition to a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary, the disc also includes a quartet of featurettes on the making of the film; a missing scene; a Cannes promo; a gallery of photos, production art, and storyboards; and excerpts from Cox's A Director's Dairy.
