Seem to remember rights issues with some of the music in this print. BBC2 have shown the original version letterboxed.

Wow, very excited about this, non-anamorphic or not. At least it's in the OAR. I shall be ordering one of these on Friday. Thanks for the heads-up, Eric  :P

Warner Home Video in the US are releasing a new, 16x9 remastered ZABRISKIE POINT DVD on the 26th May.  It's part of the fourth volume of their 'Director's Showcase' box sets and is packaged with new DVD's of Cronenberg's M. BUTTERFLY, Boorman's BEYOND RANGOON, a new director's cut of Hal Ashby's LOOKING TO GET OUT and a new director's cut (40 minutes longer) of Hugh Hudson's REVOLUTION.  I'm assuming it'll also be available seperately for folks that don't want to add the just okay-ish Cronenberg etc. films to their collections.  Bout fuckin' time Warner - do THE DEVILS next you slowcoach bastards!!

Yep!  I'll get it through Netflix if it's not offered separately.

I finally got around to seeing this last night and was really impressed. It's certainly a film that's light on plot, but what it lacks in narrative it certainly makes up for in symbolism. However, the film's biggest asset is its photography and use of location. It's been a long time since I've seen a film that looks as gorgeous as this does and I am so glad that I waited to watch the letterboxed version.

Yeah, it was the French release, which is non-anamorphic. That said, as it's PAL, it still looks very nice indeed, even zoomed to crop the letterboxing. Had I known Warner US was releasing there's, I would have waited but will not be upgrading, for the moment, at least.

There's some speculation about the imminent Warner US release on the IMDB boards, BTW. People are worried that because it has been anounced as being 'R' rated, that it will be cut. Probably just rumours but I'd say wait for the reviews (DVD Beaver would be a good place to check out, as a couple of the guys there love the film and have reviewed every release thus far) before ordering.

Yeah, agree with all the above comments - its a great movie and hugely underated too... I've have a great affection for the film cos it introduced me to The Grateful Dead and the music of John Fahey. And the eerie Pink Floyd tune over the front credits is one of the best things the Floyd have done...

Has this now been released in the UK? It went through the BBFC again in August of this year, and there are copies on ebay which appear to be of British origin, but it doesn't seem to be available from any of the normal outlets. It's as if it was released and deleted in the blink of an eye.
