And not every filmmaker is that lucky to have complete ownership of his films. He has a wealth of opportunities to license and make his films available to wider audience for a better price. I'm sure there are more than a few companies who would love to work Wiseman and present the films to his liking. For whatever reason, he is choosing to self-distribute, to a limited audience (presumably those who are already aware of his work) thus resulting in a ridiculously high price for a tolerable transfer, burned on a DVD-R.kevyip1 wrote:Sure, every filmmaker wants to have his films released by Criterion and get PAID for doing commentaries and contributing supplements, etc. BE REALISTIC. Not every filmmaker is that lucky.
That's hardly something to be impressed about.
