Criterion DVD Releases of Spalding

Criterion releases NEW DVDs on Blu-ray:
Two films from Steven Soderbergh will be released on Blu-ray this summer. In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion is preparing 'Gray's Anatomy' for Blu-ray
on June 19, 2012.
One of the great raconteurs of stage and screen, the late Spalding Gray, came together with one of cinema’s boldest image-makers, Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh,
for 'Gray’s Anatomy,' a spellbinding adaptation of Gray’s 1993 monologue of the same name.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack,
and supplements will include:
New interviews with Soderbergh and cowriter RenĂ©e Shafransky; A Personal History of the American Theater monologue by Spalding Gray, filmed in 1982; theatrical trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Amy Taubin. The director's 'And Everything is Going Fine' will also be available on Blu-ray on the same date. After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh pieced together a narrative of Gray’s life to create the documentary 'And Everything Is Going Fine.' The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements will include: Making of And Everything Is Going Fine, featuring director Steven Soderbergh, producer Kathie Russo, and editor Susan Littenberg;
Sex and Death to the Age 14, Spalding Gray's first monologue, created in 1979 and filmed in 1982; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by writer Nell Casey, editor of The Journals of Spalding Gray.
Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $39.95.
You can find the latest specs for 'Gray's Anatomy' and 'And Everything is Going Fine' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're indexed under June 19."
