Released along with Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth, Criterion presents a decent amount of supplements for the film.
First is a 28-minute interview with director Nicolas Roeg and screenwriter Jeremy Thomas. The two discuss how the film came to be, and aspects in making it, but really talk a lot about the themes of the film. It also touches on the reception the film got from the studio, Rank, who refused to place their famous "Gong Guy" logo in front of the film, saying it was a movie "about sick people, made by sick people for sick people." While a commentary would have been more welcome, this at least gives some decent insight into the film. This is presented in anamorphic widescreen.
There is also a 19-minute interview with Theresa Russell who not only talks about her character but also the movie industry in general, the lack of good female roles, and the thing with gratuitous nudity in most films. She talks a bit about the diffuculty working with Art Garfunkel, who really wasn't an actor, and working with Roeg, whom she would eventually marry. It's a good interview and I must say she's also looking quite good. Also presented in anamorphic widescreen
16 deleted scenes are also included here, presented in anamorphic widescreen, half with sound and half without. The sequences with sound are good, giving some more depth to the characters, but were probably rightfully cut.
Closing the disc is the theatrical trailer and then a gallery containing various photos and posters. The release also comes with a 28-page booklet containing an essay by Richard Combs and then an interview with Art Garfunkel taken from Rolling Stone at the time of the film's release.
It's not loaded but the supplements are all worth looking at. 6/10
