After viewing a couple of other films by the director, Zhang Yimou, I wanted to check out this highly regarded earlier film of his. It seems the movie was released in R3, but even that version is now out of print (plus it was apparently non-anamorphic with subtitles burned into the print). I would think that with Hero finally coming out in the U.S. this summer, now would be a good time to release it. Or maybe whomever owns the rights is waiting for a tie-in with the upcoming House of Flying Daggers... Does anyone know what's up with this title?
