Who else would like to finally see David Mamet's "Homicide" on DVD?

Seven of the eight films directed thus far by David Mamet are currently on DVD (this includes "Oleanna," which comes out on 9/16). Alas, the only Mamet film presently unavailable on DVD is "Homicide." Personally, I think that "Homicide" is one of Mamet's best films. Who else would like to see this film on DVD?

I was under the impression it was out, a long time ago, at the birth of dvd, probibly well out of print now, but I am sure I saw it in a dvd catalogue many years ago.

Yes, it would be great to see this on DVD.

I think there's some confusion between the Homicide film, directed and written by David Mamet, 1991 (not out on DVD), and the TV series, and "Homicide, the movie", based on the TV series, from 2000.
The latter two are available on DVD, Mamet's film isn't.

The logo for Triumph Releasing Corporation precedes the film on the OOP VHS tape. Underneath the logo, it states that Triumph is "a unit of Columbia Pictures Entertainment Inc." Therefore, I am assuming that Sony Pictures Entertainment owns the rights...since Columbia ceased to exist after being bought by Sony.

Would have loved audio commentary on House of Games and Homicide.

Mamet's films tend to have bad extras.....even Untouchables.....
