Packaging / Design

Granted, this is just a snapcase but atleast it's design is very simple and stylish.

Plus, there's also a bunch of pointless text on it that's quite enjoyable to read (in a jokishly bitter films kind of way).

Oh what the hell, I'll give it a six just for trying.


Disc contents / Extras

As for the disc, everything is kept very consistent as far as style and looks go. The menus are animated but simple.

The film looks pretty good but there's no subitles available. As for extras, there's a bunch of text based stuff but not much else.

The (qoute) entirely awful audio commentary by Robert May is actually exactly that. It actually IS entirely awful, but it's still enjoyable in a ridiculously pointless kind of way.

There's one deleted scene clocking in at a 35 seconds. It's really to bad that there weren't any more scenes included because this is just as fun as the rest of the film.

All in all, the extras are rather slim but can still keep you company for a while if you choose to go through all the text based stuff.

I really wish they had done more for this release and put in some interviews with Don Hertzfeldt himself and the other voice actors or something like that... but then again, it's a bit of a DIY type release (even if it's a very cool one) and I guess I wasn't expecting to much more from it.

In the end, the best thing about this release is just the film itself, and the fact that one can now own it on dvd.

(Oh you know what I mean, It's to bad that they're aren't even enough extras to fill a small hamster on this disc but it's still a great addition to any collection)


Sidenotes

The is marketed as a "limited edition dvd single" at Bitterfilms.com but there's no official info on how many were produced.
