5.0 out of 5 stars My anticipation is high but..., December 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Story of Film: An Odyssey (DVD)
Let me be clear that i have not seen this yet so this is a hypothetical review. First of all let me just say that I very nearly had the chance to see all 15 hours of this giant undertaking. I am in the habit of going to Minneapolis every 3 weeks to visit friends and see films. Sadly, the weekend The Walker Art Center was showing 5 hours of this each day did not match up for me. I have no doubt that this wont be worth my time. Just the fact that Mark Cousins talked with Lars von Trier for this---and after he put his foot in his mouth at Cannes von Trier said he is not doing interviews anymore---might just be one of the better reasons to get STORY OF FILM (the others being Claire Denis, Wim Wenders, etc. and on and on).

But I must say I am saddened that it has taken so long to come out on DVD (original release date was Nov. 20th and I am a very impatient person). Nevermind something of this magnitude should probably have a Blu-ray release. The only other thing I can complain about is the price. As $60 is not bad for 15 hours worth of viewing, I am tempted just the same to cancel my order before tomorrow and hopefully buy from a third party for a cheaper price. Hey, Amazon its Christmas and I am not a wealthy person this time of year.
