Kusturica's Underground

Just a quick reminder that E. Kusturica's UNDERGROUND is out by NewYorker. It appears to be the 167min version. Extras are rather...poor, but I am glad we finally have it on DVD.

The European DVD release is the longer theatrical cut, but the longest cut is the television cut, which ran about 312 (!) minutes. I don't believe that's been released anywhere.

Both Underground and Black Cat, White Cat are excellent movies! Glad to see that this stuff is starting to come out.

Has anyone been able to find this? I haven't seen it in stores and it doesn't appear to be in stock anywhere online. It was originally supposed to be out in November, but was delayed a month. Maybe it was delayed again?

Seen it at two different Borders and Tower Records, so it's available.

I received mine Dec 29th from Deep Discount (media mail)--not sure why they no longer list it. Strange that no one else has it in stock (and that so few etailers even list it).

You might try ordering it directly from New Yorker.

I had searched deepdiscountdvd for "underground" and come up empty. I should have been looking for "under ground". I put a copy on order. Thanks!

actually "Undeground" is indeed the correct title spelling...why is it filed under "Under Ground" I have no idea.

Make sure you don't end up with Under Siege.

How is the transfer on the NewYorker edition? They tend to be hit and miss.

It's actually pretty good--particularly when you consider they used a DVD-5 (i.e., single-layered disc) for this nearly 3-hour film. I didn't notice any obvious compression artifacts on my 75" screen.
