I also have the book which is naturally different and, of course, not graphic, something used to such glorious effect in the movie. The DVD set in the USA (assuming it's still available in the form I have it) is a double one with the second DVD covering the making of the movie, something I also enjoyed hugely. In the UK we just got the film itself. The way my own set came my way is a small story in itself, one that some might say was part of the big plan. Who knows - perhaps it was? It's always important, though, to remember that what's portrayed is only an interpretation of life in the astral but I suspect it will be at least as fantastic and moving for us after we get back to the real one.... I'm glad to find we shared such enjoyment of it.
