Life During Wartime - Criterion DVD!

The wait for a Life During Wartime DVD (and Blu-Ray) in the US is finally over! Well, not really; but at least it's finally been announced. And it's coming from The Criterion Collection, no less.

It's slated for a July 26th release date, and for you diehard Criterion collectors, it will be Spine #574. The features will be:

  • New digital transfer, supervised and approved by director of photography Ed Lachman, with DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Ask Todd, an audio Q&A with director Todd Solondz in which he responds to viewers’ questions
  • Making “Life During Wartime,” a new documentary featuring interviews with actors Shirley Henderson, Allison Janney, Michael Lerner, Paul Reubens, Ally Sheedy, and Michael Kenneth Williams, and on-set footage of the actors and crew
  • New video piece in which Lachman discusses his work on the film
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic David Sterritt
This makes it the first of Todd Solondz's films to appear on DVD with extras!
