If you like the music from Scorcese, you might want to check out the latest issue of "Uncut", a rather pricey (but good) British music and film mag. Each issue comes with a companion complilation CD always compiled according to a theme. This month's is called "mob life: 16 great tracks from teh films of martin scorsese." At first glance, I didn't think I would like it, but I was wrong.

Ray Lee

Good choice on the Goodfellas special edition. Some to also check out (unfortunately, I need to buy the "definitive" versions even if I already have the first run DVD...it's a disease):

Shawshawk Redemption (2 Disc)
Untouchables (2 Disc)
Battle of Algiers (3 Disc Criterion)
Slacker (2 Disc Criterion)
Videodrome (2 Disc Criterion)


Hey Ray, I guess for me, it depends on the movie. Of the recommendations you mention, the only one that intrigues me is Battle of Algiers, even though I quite enjoyed Slacker and Videodrome-I guess the other two seem too mainstream to collect. I read an article in Salon.com about Battle of Algiers, and how it relates to the situation in Iraq and modern terrorism in general, so I'd like to see it. Furthermore, I've been really impressed with most of the Criterion editions of films.
