Modern Romance? Only Now?
Is it possible that Albert Brooks' sublime Modern Romance is only just now being released on DVD? I know I should know these things, but I was making do with a VHS copy of it from college. Now I'm reading, however, that it's a very bare bones release - a cheapie with nary a trailer to be found. This is criminal, seeing as it is irrefutably one of the great comedies of the era, and beloved big time by many. Criterion should wrest it away and do the right thing - who wouldn't love to hear Brooks' commentary, which I'm guessing would be worth the steep price of the disk?
