NY Export: Opus Jazz

Still holding top spot in the list of best films I’ve seen this year, NY Export: Opus Jazz (review) has just been released on DVD by Factory 25. I received my copy yes­terday and am extremely impressed. Extras include a longer ver­sion of A Ballet in Sneakers: Jerome Robbins and Opus Jazz, the making-of doc that fol­lowed the per­form­ance, as well as the 1958 doc­u­mentary Jerome Robbins’ Ballets: USA, com­mis­sioned by the US State Department. There’s also a gor­geous booklet fea­turing stills and an essay by John Lithgow. It all comes in an attractive slim slip­case. For over­seas fans, you might be pleased to know that this NTSC disc is region-free.

Really the only thing more I could have wished for is a Blu-ray ver­sion, but that’s a minor quibble. Check out some of the gor­geous images from this film in the gal­lery below.
