DVD ever coming out?


Does anyone have any information about when this will be out on dvd? It's a shame that one of the best versions of King Lear hasn't made it to dvd yet.

I'm not sure where you are in the world but I just watched it on DVD. Region 2 - I got the copy on rental from Lovefilm.com .

It really is a marvellous piece of cinema.

It is wonderful. On Region 2, 132 minutes (PAL speedup accounts for difference). Academy ratio. I believe imdb is incorrect in reporting it as 1.66:1, as the images are beautifully composed at 4:3. It is a Columbia-TriStar/Sony UK release. I got it incredibly cheaply (less than $10 including shipping) at Amazon.
