It’s been a while since Subversive Cinema first announced that they would be putting out the definitive version of Richard Stanley’s critically underseen Dust Devil, and it seems the time between that announcement and now has been spent doing nothing but compiling all the features that will be spread throughout this massive 4-disc set of the film.
The official specs have shown up all over the ‘net, and I thought you guys would probably dig hearing about just how far Subversive is willing to go when they say “definitive”. Dig:
Dust Devil: The Final Cut (w/ commentary with Richard Stanley and Norman Hill)
107-min Hi Def transfer, 16×9 widescreen (1.85:1); transfer approved by Richard Stanley
5.1 mix, 2.0 Dolby Stereo mix

2nd disc CD will be the soundtrack by Simon Boswell

Voice of the Moon – documentary on Afghanistan (w/ commentary by Richard Stanley and Norman Hill)

That enough for you? Does that make the wait worth it? Damn, I hope so cause if not… well, nothing can please you, it seems. Dust Devil: The Final Cut is set to hit stores on September 26th, and Subversive is only making 10,000 copies and then it’s gone forever, so do not miss it.
