Velvet Underground Documentary To Be Released On Blu-Ray, DVD By Criterion Collection

The Criterion Collection has announced that a kaleidoscopic documentary on The Velvet Underground will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 13.

The Velvet Underground: A Documentary Film, directed by Todd Haynes, features never-before-seen performances by the rock band, interviews, rare recordings, and mind-blowing transmissions from the 1960s avant-garde cinema scene.

In this documentary, Haynes vividly evokes the creative origins of the twin visionaries Lou Reed and John Cale, Andy Warhol‘s fabled Factory, and the explosive tension between pop and the avant-garde that propelled the group and ultimately consumed it.

The Blu-ray special edition features 4K digital master with Dolby Atmos soundtrack; Alternate stereo soundtrack; Audio commentary featuring Haynes and editors Affonso Gonçalves and Adam Kurnitz; Complete versions of some of the avant-garde films excerpted in the movie; Haynes and musicians John Cale and Maureen Tucker in conversation with writer Jenn Pelly in 2021; and outtakes of interviews shot for the film with musician Jonathan Richman, filmmaker Jonas Mekas, and actor Mary Woronov.

It also includes a 2021 essay by critic Greil Marcus.
