'Inland Empire' DVD available for pre-ordering

Great news! The two-disc DVD of David Lynch's newest film, "Inland Empire," is available for pre-ordering at (click below to pre-order):

Amazon lists the release date as July 24, although reports lately have said it will come out August 14. To be on the safe side, I'm assuming it's going to be the latter.

Either way, it's exciting that it'll be out on DVD soon. I did get to see it in the theater, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm desperate to own the DVD because, like many of Lynch's films (especially "Mulholland Drive" and "Lost Highway"), "Inland Empire" will require multiple viewings for a decent comprehension of what takes place during the three-hour feast for the senses.

[EDIT: Aug. 14 is now the confirmed release date.]

Season 2 DVD special features - and what would you want?

I've watched all the special features from the Season 2 set (except for the easter eggs, which I understand exist, but I haven't found them yet). My overall thought is that they're very good but just too short.

The selection of people interviewed for the set is great, both in terms of actors and crew members. But why cut the interviews so short? Surely these people have more to say about being part of such a groundbreaking series.

Perhaps, though, more material from those interviews will appear on the rumored full-series box set.

Which brings me to a little poll of sorts: If a box set containing the entire series does get released, what special features would you like to see on it that the previous two season box sets don't have? Post your answer in a comment.
