    I e-mailed DVD ZONE 2 about this DVD, and this was the response from a very helpful lady named Muriel:

    You do know there's a Region 1 version of this great movie due in September, don't you?! [​IMG]

    Here's the Amazon.fr pre-order page: EUREKA [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I pre-ordered. It's a great film, in my opinion. I love Roeg's films and love Hackman's acting.

    It's entirely possible the upcoming MGM R1 disc will have the Roeg commentary - after all, I was shocked to see not one, but two commentaries on Ken Russell's brilliant Women in Love.

    Russell and Roeg are probably the two greatest living British filmmakers.

    No extras were announced in the MGM press-release. [​IMG]

    Were Women In Love's extras announced in the PR?

    I'm pretty sure it is a bare-bones, plain-wrap - with bad cover-art too boot. [​IMG]

    Glad your a fan of Roeg (and Russell!), Jon. What do you think the chances are of Canel Plus/Warner releasing Performance next year? I think we might see it - they released Man Who Fell To Earth and they own the rights to Performance. Long overdue on DVD, in my opinion.

    Cheers, Jon.

    Je ne comprends pas !
    The first link shows two documentaries - which is great - but I don't see any mention of a commentary unless a)I'm being stupid or b) the link has changed.
    Also, there's no specific mention of subtitles on the documentaries. I know Roeg and Russel will be talking in English but that doesn't mean the rest will be in English. Perhaps caution should be exercised here ?

    Ah! The info in that link has ch-ch-ch-ch-changed! [​IMG]

    Oh, well, the documentaries will be good, I'm sure. I can speak a bit French.

    I want to check this DVD out, anyway. If the transfer on the MGM region 1 edition is better, then I'll get it, too. The film is a masterpiece, in my eyes, so double-dipping doesn't worry me, in this case! [​IMG]
