    This sounds like a fascinating set, but I'd rather rent it than own it. I've heard such wildly different opinions on it that I'd find it difficult to own without an attendant set of history books to augment - for and against - the tale on screen. I'd last heard about this film in 1999. I'd completely forgotten its existence until you mentioned this DVD release. Quite controversial at the time of its filming, but all that seems to have died down in the interim. Should be interesting to see, but probably best served as part of a larger course of study. I recall Christopher Lee saying he considered this role to be his finest, for what it's worth.
