There has been a fantastic SE of The Last Emperor for months now in the UK, and I just bought a regionless player, so I'm seriously considering buying it. It has the original, superior in my mind, theatrical cut, which won so many Oscars, with commentary by Bertolucci. It also has the extended cut on a second disc, as well as a documentary and various other extras. As I understand it, both cuts are new 16x9 transfers. Does anybody know if this will make it to Region 1? I know Artisan has released the unwatchable DVD of the extended cut here, which I had before I got the Korean 2 disc set, but I remember that Columbia released the theatrical version back in 1987, I have no idea who has video rights to it now, maybe that's the holdup? Also, does anybody have the British SE, is it really 16x9 for both versions of the film?
