Has anyone seen Brass' cut of the film?  Raro put it out as IO CALIGOLA.

I have literally received the new 2-disc Minerva/Raro IO CALIGOLA DVD in the post from Italy today.  It contains the Italian cut of the film (including the extended version of the killing machine scene), the standard American 'Uncut' version containing the hardcore, and about 20 minutes of deleted scenes which I assume aren't in the Italian cut but are in the other versions.  Oh and there's a nice glossy 24 page booklet in Italian.

This makes 5 distinct edits of Caligula I now possess.  This Italian edit, the 3 in the UK Imperial edition and the one shown on Channel 4 during its simultaneous broadcast of the opening night of FilmFour.

Has anyone seen the briefly available Guccione cut that was available to buy online?

i didn't release that there was a trailer for a mock Caligula re-make.  It's here: "Trailer for the remake of Gore Vidal's Caligula" by Francesco Vezzoli

Caligula seems to me as the ultimate fan edit project.  If anyone is interested how you would go about such a task, along with a painstaking analysis on what's present on the recent DVD releases, then take a gander at this analysis by Alexander Tuschinski which can be found here:

There's also an interview he conducted with Tinto Brass:
Caligula: Director's Cut (Tinto Brass interview)

There are a few attempts at restoration of scenes on the internet:

Imperial Bordello
"CALIGULA" RESTORED SCENE!!! - Imperial Bordello

Proculus vs. Killing Machine
"CALIGULA" RESTORED SCENE!!! - Proculus vs. Killing Machine

Harem of Monsters
"CALIGULA" RESTORED SCENE!!! - Harem of Monsters

Journey to Capri
"CALIGULA" RESTORED SCENE!!! - Journey to Capri

If you haven't yet picked up Arrow's 4-disc Imperial Edition yet then I suggest you do so.  Amazon are selling it for 7-95 GBP.  A real bargain.

So is the Arrow release the most comprehensive release?

From memory, it didn't have the commentary or at least one of the commentaries from the USA release so I opted for that, it being region free anyway.

this page at dvdcompare compares the various releases:

Thank you for the link.

I would be cool if there was a dvd release of Caligula that re inserted those deleted scenes kind of like how for Once Upon a Time in America, new footage was reinserted into the film.

is there a release of Caligula with those above linked new scenes available on dvd?
