Kieslowski's Double Life Reconsidered

The New Yorker's Anthony Lane writes a great reconsidered review of Krzysztof Kieslowski's Double Life of Veronique. The movie is one of Kieslowski's finest. The lives of two women -- one Polish, one French -- are masterfully intermingled, and the visuals, as mentioned in the review, are often stunning. I love how Kieslowski made the movie seem a little dreamy, a little worn down, seen at times through a brown haze. And of course, there's the young and breathtaking Irene Jacob. I admit, back in college I had a poster of her in Red on one of my walls. In many ways this film is more thoughtful, more moving than any of the Three Colors movies.

Can somebody please release this masterpiece on DVD???
