    Has anyone else ordered this? A 6 hour Director's cut of this movie was just released a few months ago in Italy and has been getting favorable reviews. Anchor Bay was supposed to have released it in R1, but they are having licensing difficulties. It's still in English, no forced subs. Here's 2 sites to get it at:

    DVD.IT (In Italy)

    Scarecrow Video (Seattle, WA)

    Might be out of stock, but they have more coming in.

    I ordered it from Scarecrow and got it a couple months ago.

    Haven't had the time to watch it yet (it is sitting next to my TV) but I went through the discs and it looked quite good. A LOT of new scenes, although some of them seem to throw it off a bit.

    For example, my favorite scene that I went to right away is the whole "Blood of Eden" sequence, where the plane glides into the outback and they walk along. So much is added to this sequence that it changes where the song plays. It doesn't kick in until they are on the ground, rather than from the explosion (in the theatrical and Japanese LD cuts) which was the most effective way.

    Anyway, will have to watch it soon.
