This is the Love Conquers All version, right?

I'm waiting for the Criterion release anyway.

So is there a planned Criterion release, or is one simply eventually expected?

No, this blu-ray contains the 132-minute "compromise cut" that was prepped for American theaters. It has never been available on DVD before*.

The 94-minute "Sheinberg Edit" (aka. the "Love Conquers All" version) and Gilliam's 142-minute "Director's Cut" will be exclusive to the Criterion BD when it gets released later (either Q4 this year or sometime in 2012, according to Criterion themselves). Whether or not this "theatrical" middle-ground version will be included on the CC is unclear.

*The old DVD erroneously listed the runtime as 132 minutes but actually contained Gilliam's preferred longer version.

It's just rumored at this point. Criterion's Blu-ray edition of Gilliam's Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas followed about a year after Universal's bare-bones edition. People are hoping that Criterion can strike a similar licensing deal for Brazil.

I'll grab this one when it hits ~$10, but I'm also waiting for the CC BD. Chances are good, as Josh mentioned, because they were able to release Fear and Loathing.
