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.
