No one seems to have posted this anywhere else, so here goes: 21st August 2006: Hearts of Darkness (Bahr, Fax & Hickenlooper, George / 1991) [Metrodome / R2 PAL / UK] I know I'm excited, despite already owning the LD!

Very exciting news. Since this documentary is AWOL in the Apocalypse Now: The Complete Dossier specs, the Region 2 may be the only way to own it on DVD. But it also begs the question: why is Metrodome able to license it in the UK if Coppola is (presumably) able to block Paramount from releasing it in the States? Very curious.

Brian - Tartan Releasing originally gave it a theatrical and LD release over here in the UK. I'm presuming the rights lapsed, as Universal put it out as part of a VHS double pack with the original cut of the film just before Redux came out theatrically. What happened to the rights after that is anyone's guess - the VHS set soon went OOP and turned up in a few clearout sales in major chains. It's entirely possible that international (or at least UK) rights in perpetuity were granted to a non-US agent, who has then been able to license. It seems unlikely Coppola signed off on this release.

I have spent many a day researching HoD! It was actually one of my main reasons for buying a laserdisc player in the 1st place (and Star Wars in the original cuts). The Tartan LD I have is 1.33:1 - is this the original AR?

Can anyone confirm whether Hearts Of Darkness was shot on film or video? If it was on video, there will be no problem with PAL speed-up, since this is coming out only in R2.
