Just a bunch of alternate/deleted scenes mashed together from "Punch-Drunk Love"...
18 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

I looked forward to Paul Thomas Anderson's "Blossoms and Blood" (2003), available on the "Punch-Drunk Love" DVD, only to find a bunch of alternate shot and/or deleted scenes from the film collaged together with the harmonium soundtrack from the movie.

If you see it advertised on the DVD, it's not really worth making a fuss over. See it if you can, especially if you loved the film, but it's not as entertaining or odd as that hilarious "Mattress Man" commercial, which is also on the DVD!
