There will be a two-Disc-Edition in Germany. A Region 2 Edition. Everything will be in german and english. Except for the cover.
Means that the discs will also be interesting for fans in the UK.

Does anybody else have an idea of an alternative (ie. Not UK version) region 2 release of Mystic River?

I really want the audio commentary.  
Obviously I also want the english 5.1 audio.

I'm really looking forard to this, but I'm cautious. Can anyone give me a sense of the Charlie Rose appearance? Rose is always so hit-n-miss, and I know Clint is not a fan of the promotional process. Can someone sell this to me?

Oh, and I'm new - and haven't read everything yet. Hope I'm not rehashing old ground.

Found an early review of the DVD up at DVDFile.com. It's a shame what they say about some of the extras though:

Quote
The sole extra on disc one is a screen-specific audio commentary with actors Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon. Unfortunately, as excited as I was to listen to it, it is rather dull. Both speak in very slow, methodical and often dry tones - it is a bit wearying to get through, although the second half is more insightful than the first. Robbins is especially intriguing in some of his theories on acting and directing, although he frequently cuts off Bacon in mid-thought (oh, such actor ego). Only true fans of Robbins and Bacon, or acting students, will likely make it all the way through.

Disc two at first appears to offer plenty of documentary extras, but the two featurettes included are disappointing in their brevity. Beneath the Surface (22 minutes) is the better of the two, offering interviews with all the principals (including Eastwood, all the main cast, screenwriter Brian Helgeland and author Dennis Lehane). Comments are thoughtful is sometimes pretentious, but Mystic River is an actor's show, so the fawning is appropriate and predictable. From Page to Screen (11 minutes) is more flat, featuring Lehane's initial thoughts on the script, as well as the cast and Eastwood's ruminations on the Boston streets as another character in the film.

Oh well, at least it's something. The Deluxe Edition is still the one I'm going for.  8)

On the other hand, Slant magazine's Mystic River DVD review has generally positive things to say about it, so who knows.  I've been watching for someone to post a commentary track review for Mystic River at ratethatcommentary.com, since it's linked from their home page, but nothing yet.

Oh well, I know I'm buying the 3-disc set either way...

Here's a shot of the packagaing for the deluxe edition, from IGN.com's DVD section:



It looks nice, but I don't like the way disc 2 and 3 are situated. It looks like it could be a very slight annoyance to get to disc three. For the heck of it, their review is here.

That is strange. Perhaps it was cancelled at the last minute. Still, you'd think there would be some explanation on the website for the sake of all the folks who got the e-mail!  ???

Anyway, thanks for thinking of us.  :)

Well I went to Best Buy today to pick up the Deluxe Edition and they didn't have it. They just had the full screen  :-X (full screen DVD's should NOT be allowed) and wide screen copies. I asked if they have it and they said they wouldn't have it until Saturday, which is the same crap they pulled with the GBU DVD. So since Wal-Mart is pretty much right beside it, I went in there and they had 5 copies just sitting there calling my name, literally. Can't wait to watch it again.  8)

There's a very nice review by Dave Kehr in today's New York Times ...

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/08/movies/08DVD.html

NEW DVD'S
Looking Into a Dark River, Seeing the Shadow of Evil
By DAVE KEHR
 
Mystic River

The director Clint Eastwood turns Dennis Lehane's fine suspense novel about three estranged childhood friends (Sean Penn, Kevin Bacon and Tim Robbins) from working-class Boston whose paths cross again in the wake of a brutal murder into a symphonic study in contrasting voices and values. Long fascinated by music as a subject ("Honkytonk Man," "Bird"), Mr. Eastwood here creates a genuinely musical style, using his performers like soloists, from Mr. Robbins's moody baritone to Mr. Penn's spiky soprano. Their individual arias are incorporated into a magnificent choral piece.

In this film without a clear protagonist, in which evil is no longer embodied by a lone madman (as in "Dirty Harry") but by far more generalized and profoundly human forces (represented by the plunging shots into the dark river that gives the film its title), Mr. Eastwood continues to make major strides as an artist. The last 10 minutes, in which the focus suddenly and devastatingly shifts from Mr. Penn's vengeful ex-con to his coldblooded wife (Laura Linney, in a performance that should have earned an Oscar to go with those awarded to Mr. Penn and Mr. Robbins), constitute some of the most precisely calibrated, morally nuanced filmmaking to come out of the American cinema.

Warner Home Video is releasing "Mystic River" in a film-only version and a "deluxe edition" that includes an extra disc of supplementary material and a CD of the film's soundtrack. (Also available today from Universal: Mr. Eastwood's underrated "Breezy" from 1973, the first film he directed but did not act in, and Don Siegel's sinewy "Coogan's Bluff" from 1968, with Mr. Eastwood as a Western sheriff in New York.) 2003. $27.95/$39.98. R.

 Good after the rain evening from the Midwest-USA:

   Received the 3-disc issue in widescreen yesterday....watched the movie and thought it was quite a message about how folks really kid themselves when they fail to tell the truth about things.....We wondered what really happened to Sean Penn's character and those other guys(his thug friends) who seemed to be breaking the law all the time??....

    Still have to watch the 2nd disc and maybe the explanation is in there.....

    Well, anyway, gotta watch this great movie several more times 'till I start to get all the messages given to us from Clint's great mind....

    The long wait for the discs is finally over and now I have something to treasure for a long time.....Thank you Clint Eastwood !!!!!

    Respectfully,

Some one mentioned this before and it got me wondering.... Why does the deluxe edition have 3 discs ? Is there really that much information that it could not possibly have all been contained on 1..or at least 2 discs...

I think the third disc is an audio CD of the soundtrack.

Could anybody, that have seen the Mystic River 3-disc set, tell me about the QUALITY and how good the extra features are?

The online reviews I have come across seems to suggest that although there are plenty of extras, the extras isn't that elaborative and interesting...

What do you reckon?
