    Hopefully this isn't made from the same master as the R1 director's cut, or at least isn't the same A/V quality. It is anamorphic, like the previous R2 release. I wonder if it'll have any of the extras from the 2nd Gaumont disc. Anyway, I'll wait for Gary Tooze to update his Last Emperor comparison page before I buy.

    Good God, that region 1 edition is AWFUL! It must rank as one of the worst DVD transfers ever. Appalling presentation of a beautifully shot film. [​IMG]

    Lets hope the UK region 2 edition does the film justice.
