Wow, great job paraphrasing that thread, Eoliano!

This one has been mentioned this before, but not in that thread: Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopâtre

Good news! New York's Film Forum has just announced it will show a new uncut print of Gillo Pontecorvo's unforgettable Burn! starring Marlon Brando. With any luck, a new DVD will eventually follow.

Angel's Egg

(Not a domestic release, limited availability, may not play on all machines, etc., etc., etc....)
post #12  on August 11, 2004 - 8:44 PM PDT  
A few more I'd like to see on DVD:

A Pure Formality [dir: Guiseppe Tornatore; starring: Roman Polansky and Gerard Depardieu]
Colossus: The Forbin Project [dir: Joseph Sargent]
Ed And His Dead Mother [dir: Jonathan Wacks; starring: Steve Buscemi and Ned Beatty]
Last Night [dir: Don McKellar] -- There is a DVD, but it's pan-and-scan only. We need an aspect-ratio-preserving widescreen release.
Lonely Are The Brave [dir: David Miller; starring: Kirk Douglas]
Painted Faces [dir: Alex Law; starring: Sammo Hung]

I put Mondo down at some point. I should give up and try to get the VHS, now that they've dropped the price, I guess. Or just try to find it for rent, to see if the color effect was how I remembered it.
post #14  on August 16, 2004 - 1:54 PM PDT  
It wasn't on anyone's list, but D.A.R.Y.L. will finally be out in October.

> llibby listed (amongst other films of note):
> ---------------------------------
> ruben & ed
> ---------------------------------

It always does my heart good when I see other people mention Ruben and Ed. What a hilarious movie! The trouble is, R&E was already hard enough to find on VHS, and according to rumor, the filmmaker has no plans of making this film available again. But that was the rumor before the days of the DVD.

On a completely pointless side note, the father of one of my best friends has a bit part in that movie.
post #20  on August 18, 2004 - 4:29 PM PDT  
One film that was on many folks' DVD MIA list in the other thread was Fellini's LA DOLCE VITA.

Well, guess what?

LA DOLCE VITA streets on DVD September 21st.

From Koch Lorber, it will be digitally remastered and restored. (Those of you in SF this week can see it at the Castro Theater, too)

Great news.
