    Having been playing the CD-Wow lottery and getting £1.99 off, i struggled to find anything i really wanted, so ended up pre-ordering Millers Crossing, a coen brothers gangster film...

    The few web review i looked at appear mixed. Has anyone seen it, and would recommend, or is it £11 wasted.

    Its a great film, my favourite Coen movie. I loved it before I even knew who the Coens were. I am sure you will enjoy it.

    Top notch film. Got it on laserdisc recently. Great choice, you won't regret it.

    Miller's Crossing is a wonderful film I will be ordering too

    John Turturro puts in his usual brilliant performance

    I love all the Coen brothers stuff that I've seen so far, so I'm also tempted by this as I've never seen it before.

    According to cd-wow it has 2 channel sound, but on play.com they're showing a r2 special edition. Only thing is, it say's that it's due for release 3/11/03. Does anyone know anything about this release, specificlly will it have 5.1 sound ?
    cheers

    The R1 will have the original DD4.0 soundtrack (I don't think 5.1 is going to make a hell of a lot of difference with this sort of movie) and an anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1 transfer.

    The R1 has also a featurette, some interview soundbites, and a stills gallery.

    A detailed review of the disk is here: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=6188

    I'm not going to wait for the R2 as it's unlikely to contain anything extra. Even if it does have a 5.1 soundmix (unlikely, given that it's Fox), that won't be enough reason for me to buy it, particularly as DVDSoon are practically giving away this and Barton Fink right now :clap:

    Miller's Crossing and Barton Fink are being
    released on R1 May 20th.
    Extras are limited to say the least but the films
    themselves have been remastered.

    Watched it the other night, very good, it is the sort of film that will improve with repeat viewings as it is very narrative driven.
