Medulla Special Edition
Picture Ratio: Widescreen, for the most part
Disc 1 (94:53)
Disc 2 (50:40)
For some reason, the content as listed on the back of the case is reversed - everything listed as being on disk one is actually on disk two, and vice versa.
Disk one contains the whole album in 5.1 stereo (unfortunately I don't have a 5.1 system, so I haven't had the chance to check this out) and a 50-minute "making of". The album itself starts playing as soon as you put the DVD in, and for some reason my player can't access the menu system, so I have to skip to the end of the album to watch the documentary. Annoying, but I can live with it. A lot of the interviews in the doco are in Icelandic, so subtitles are your friend (unless you can understand it).
Disk two has five music videos, plus a "Making of" for "Triumph of a Heart". The video for Triumph is pretty weird and features Björk married to a cat. They must have found the most well-behaved cat ever to make that video. "Where is the Line" has to be about the most disturbing Björk vid ever though. Covered in a layer of mini-sacks and standing in a barn, Björk gives birth to a person covered in white stuff who writhes around and spews some sort of globby matter. And there are exploding hay bales and grass-wookies, and Björk wobbling around happily in the middle or it. I wish there was a commentary or extra in which they gave some explanation as to what it means, 'cause I'm seriously stumped. The half-hour documentary is interesting, giving insight into the Triumph video, and featuring Spike Jonze pretending to be someone else.
