The DVD embodies a bold experiment in the delivery of film and in the history of film--a contextualized presentation that offers unusual advantages to students of film, to critics and scholars seeking to document its history, and to directors and other creative figures who wish to speak directly to their audiences. This book examines supplementary features created for DVD releases of film as a form of cinematic appreciation and criticism. Drawing on interviews with DVD producers, directors, and scholars, it explores how the format, at its best, combines the enthusiasm of a fan, cinematic nostalgia, and scholarly insight.
