Dennis' comments on print status in Japan was interesting, particularly
because I'm debating about picking up the DVD of Woman in the Dunes. A few
reviews on the web site said that the print used was not as
sharp as the Criterion VHS and that the blacks were rather flat.

Should we hold out hope that Criterion will rerelease the film on DVD, and
how did it come to be that Criterion had a good print then some other
company puts out the DVD much later? The company (I think it's Image)
claims to have struck this print off the "original negative".
