    Well, in keeping with the outburst of happiness on this forum following the announcement of this release [​IMG] I can now provide the cheapest price on the net. Go to DVDBoxoffice and search under Z: The Masterworks Edition. A price slightly over US $13, including worldwide free shipping.

    This is great news. This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I remember seeing this movie in May 1970. As some will recall, there were major riots on college campuses right after the shooting or 4 students at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. There seemed, at the time, to be a lot similarities between what was going on in the movie and the U.S. at the time.

    Through dvdpricesearch.com, most of the e-tailers are showing June 25 as the release date. Digital Eyes was the only e-tailer showing May 21 as the release date. Does anyone know what's going on here and which is the correct release date? This will be one I pre-order online. I can't imagine Best Buy carrying this title.
