Its also inexplicably missing the commentary track.
\"I wanted to make a film for kids, something that would present them with a kind of elementary morality. Because nowadays nobody bothers to tell those kids, \'Hey, this is right and this is wrong\'.\"

The Special Edition of Unbearable Lightness of Being has cheesy cover art.  I'm reluctant to buy it because the cashier will think I'm purchasing a porno film.

That's what Amazon's for.  Plus, you'll probably get it cheaper online.

I still haven't bought Exotica for that exact same reason.  Which is weird, because I have no compunction about buying actual porn in a store.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

compunction
two amazing things about that word

-you're the first person to ever use it here, in a good joke no less. (hacksparrow posted it once as part of an article)
-it was word of the day at dictionary.com almost EXACTLY three years ago.

For the sake of illustration:


Now tell me that wouldn't make you blush when you're handing it across the counter to the cute check-out girl at Best Buy.

Little known fact: dictionary.com gets their words of the day by following me around with a tape recorder.  I'm hella eloquent.

You think she's gonna tell all the cute girls at the Cute Girls meetings that you bought what she thinks is softcore porno?

"Hi, what's your name?"
"You're the porno guy, aren't you?"

Nothing says "Quality Cinema" like poorly photoshopped heads.

the new Congo looks like a comedy about the search for a giant gorilla gummy head that morphs depending on whether someone's head is in front of it.

Looks like a comedy or some Disney flick. Easily one of the worst DVD cover's I've seen in awhile.

I like the original...seems more mysterious. The new picture is just too clear and Hopkins doesn't need to be foregrounded. It's not about him.

Not only that... The film isn't in COLOR!
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol
