I got my copy.  Agreed A British Picture is poorer quality (in terms of restoration) but it is great it is on official DVD, and it is a good overview of his career.  I enjoyed watching it again.

Lots of extras, still working through them, and still to actually watch Women in Love again !!!

I hope Criterion do more of Ken's films, with extras.

I just purchased my Criterion blu ray copy of "Women In Love" today.  Fantastic disc.  The film looks terrific.  Great interviews with Billy Williams and Michael Bradsell. A very interesting short Film, called "Second Best," was also a great addition.  My one disappointment with the release is that "A British Picture: Portrait of an Enfant Terrible" was not restored.  The print appears to be transferred from a tape source, though it does look a lot better than my bootleg copy.  Still, that should not detour people from buying the disc.  If sales are great, more Russell films may follow!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited that the Criterion Collection is finally releasing a KEN RUSSELL film.  The release will also include "A British Picture: Portrait of an Enfant Terrible."  Hopefully if sales are good others will follow.  I've got my fingers crossed for the Directors Cut of "The Devils."
