Criterion, What Are You Waiting For?,
This review is from: Sometimes a Great Notion [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This epic, powerfully acted, and visually breathtaking movie beg for the Criterion DVD treatment. What can they be waiting for? The characters in this film, bigger than life, seem to be acted by the only actors who could possibly do justice to the roles. The cinematography is lush and beautifully composed on location in the Pacific Northwest, and the dialogue keeps the film moving effortlessly, as though one were a member of the family of loggers portrayed in the film. Sign me up to purchase the DVD as soon as it is released, hopefully by Criterion.

I believe the delay may be due to the fact Paul Newman dislikes this film. I saw it in the 7th grade and this is one of my favorite movies.....the ending is as classic as the original (Rat Pack) Ocean's 11...the drowning sequence haunts me to this day..... I'd be in line as well when this DVD comes out!
