Glen and Randa: 4/28/09

From DVD Drive-In:
Once upon a time there were countries, cities, schools, movies, electric appliances, The Beatles, politicians, then… GLEN AND RANDA. On April 28, VCI Entertainment will release the rarely seen 1970 science fiction film, GLEN AND RANDA for the first time on DVD. Independent filmmaker Jim McBride follows a hedonistic, young couple as they roam the post-apocalyptic world in search of a fabled, unspoiled city of dreams. The record of the journey is Glen and Randa, a desperate odyssey by the last survivors of an atomic holocaust, stumbling through the wreckage of a vanished civilization. The DVD will include a 1.85:1 widescreen anamorphic transfer and include a video interview with director McBride.
I loved McBride's David Holzman's Diary, so I'll definitely be checking this one out.

This is cool news. I remember reading the review of the film in an early 70's issue of Cinefantastique magazine. I finally got to see the film on the VHS release from United-VCI in the early 80's. I guess VCI still owns the rights and I look forward to seeing it again.

Re: Glen and Randa: 4/28/09

I think it's an excellent, visionary, thought-provoking post-apocalyptic yarn. But the viewer has to do a lot of interpretation because much of the film is sans dialogue, and a plot or theme is hard to come by too.

I'll be picking up my copy of the DVD soon.
