Today, I picked up the newly-released DVD of The Cars That Ate Paris, Peter Weir's 1974 rural gothic exploring Australian car culture. The DVD is actually a double feature, containing both this film and a latter Weir film, The Plumber, which appears to be some sort of psychological horror film.

The next classic Australian cult film I buy will probably be the much anticipated, feature-rich DVD release of Dogs In Space (expected later this year, according to Richard Lowenstein).

Rooms For The Memory
I recently became friends with Charles from Dogs In Space (grouchy drummer in band, The Ears - or Mick Hutchence's band in the movie) and he views the film as an embarrassment. Personally, I've always thought of it as an awesome movie (and soundtrack), and a Melbourne cult classic, which is a rarity. Good to hear it's finally being released on DVD.

Re: Rooms For The Memory
At the screening at ACMI earlier this year, Richard Lowenstein announced that the DVD, currently being prepared, will have more than an hour of extra features, including a making-of documentary that was shot at the time of production. He also said that he'd like to do a rerelease of the soundtrack album, with some extra tracks that didn't make it to the initial one, but the rights are tied up with INXS's management, so it's more complicated.
