Got mine last week and it looks sensational, started listening to a bit of the commentary which is also quite entertaining along with a Hopper/Mora interview which show's the 2 men's respect and enthusiasm for each other all these (in Hopper's case sober) year's later.

I have just watched the new DVD today. What a difference a correct aspect ratio and a clear clean unfaded print makes (from the national film archives no less)

This film remains a lost cult classic among Australian films and it occured to me while watching it that this is what Baz L.... should have done with Australia. Even after all these years David Gulpilil's character comes across as a far more believable person than the stereotyped and stylized creation he portrayed in Australia. Mad dog has a far better vision of the Australian bush too!

THANKS FOR THESE GREAT COMMENTS--I AM PROUD OF THIS FILM AND FINALLY A DVD THAT DOES IT JUSTICE from PHILIPPE MORA

No problems Philippe, I think the film will find many more fans from this clean edition. Always wondered where the exterior of the prison that Mad Dog is taken to was filmed?

Troma Entertainment just reissued a two disc Special Edition DVD that's a marked improvement on their previous shoddy release. It's a 2:35:1 ratio presentation from a print that's in very good shape.
