    Could someone point me to the best DVD? I have US version (DANCE WITH THE DEVIL) which I haven't watched yet hoping a better cut will surface. dvdshop seems to be selling a special 2-disc version but the English track is only 2.0 (plus I'm afraid of forced German subtitles). Then there's a UK version I know nothing about. Anyone?

    I have the German 'Perdita Durango' DVD and it does NOT have forced subtitles. In fact, you can also choose English subtitles which comes handy during some sequences spoken in Spanish...
    I'd say the German edition is the only one worth getting since all other versions are rather heavily cut. Refer to this URL for what's missing from the US version: http://www.sensesofcinema.com/conten.../perdita.html.
    As far as I can tell, the German DVD includes ALL scenes mentioned.

    amazon.de doesn't seem to be aware of its existance. What German (or other) e-tailers have it?

    Perdita Durango is rated 'FSK18' in Germany. I believe the German law bans advertising video releases with this rating. I got my DVD from http://www.1a-dvdshop.ch

    ...and by the way, the Washington-based Scarecrow Video also seems to have this title in their sales catalog at http://www.scarecrow.com.
