How many of these are there? I noticed that GC carries DVD-R copies of Samuel Fuller's White Dog, which I've wanted to see for a while, and a couple of documentaries. A few of those wacky Turkish movies are available for request, what else is there?

The link to the Turkish Star Wars topic got messed up somehow on my first post.

I could of sworn that some company is preping a release for WHITE DOG on DVD. I saw the film years ago and really didn't find much interest towards it. While it is thought provoking and disturbing, it just comes off sort of "there". The casting of Kristy McNicol was a weird choice. She is a very good actress (who now coaches volleyball at some high school) but unfortunatly her talents were very underplayed.

EL TOPO.. well, that's an entirely different story.

What is this about a TURKISH STAR WARS?

I have a fairly bad VHS copy, would this DVD-R copy be much better? Does the outfit that makes these DVD-Rs have any other Jodorowsky films? (I'd love to see any docs about Jodorowsky that are out there) I've also seen The Holy Mountain and Santra Sangre, I've never been able to rent Fando Y Lis, I think that the last time I tried, the availability was either in the orange or red. A local video store had a VHS copy of The Rainbow Thief at one point, but I never got around to renting it.

I can't speak for the quality of this particular DVD-R, but the copy I own, while obviously not up to Criterion-like standards, definitely looks better than VHS.
EL TOPO, THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, and SANTA SANGRE are all available on EBAY, among other places. In fact, there even seems to be a Region 1 SANTA SANGRE floating around. I wonder why GC hasn't picked that one up yet?

There's a feature-length documentary about him on the FANDO Y LIS DVD, and there's even a commentary track by the man himself to go along with the film.

Unfortunately, there's probably no way to get around GC's availability issues, so you may just have to break down and buy it.

a few other dvdr titles that i can think of right now are:

cinderella 2000
if footmen tire you, what will horses do?
god's angry man
he restoreth my soul

if greencine gets those turkish movies, i'll shit myself to the moon. i've got a few of them on vhs, and they're truly wonderful.

the company that they get these dvdr's from has all kinds of stuff that would probably interest many of you. kind of pricey, but some of the stuff is nearly impossible to come by. http://5minutestolive.com.

Picking up those rare movies on DVD-R was the best thing that greencine has done--in fact it's the reason that I rejoined! Yes, better even than porn. I hope lots more are coming.
BTW, I read someplace that there are going to be official R1 releases of I Walked with a Zombie and Cat People and El Topo and Magic Mountain in the (hopefully not too distant) future.

If you're fascinated by the notion of Turkish remakes (and, if you aren't, you certainly should be), the discs have finally arrived. You will be amazed.

Which Turkish remake is the best one to start with? I popped Turkish Star Wars in my queue.

Excellent choice. TSW is particularly unbelievable.
