Steven Wright: When the Leaves Blow Away

The short film "One Soldier" is another animal altogether. At first, it appears to be an obvious parody of art-house cinema from Federico Fellini to Jim Jarmusch (with Jarmusch's "Dead Man" being an obvious influence), but as it progresses, it darkens, until by the end, you're left somewhat shellshocked by Wright's seemingly bleak, almost nihilistic, and deeply disturbing worldview. Avoid watching it if you're remotely depressed.
As for the early material, it was good but disappointingly short. Someone else mentioned the wealth of classic Wright material out there, and why none of it has made its way to DVD is a mystery. I've got the Comic Relief shows, and his sets are always among the highlights. So why can't they give fans some of the classic shows from that era on DVD?
Still, even at its length, this DVD is well-worth the price. If you're a Steven Wright fan, it's essential.
