Damn everything.

    I already sob my way through this movie. Every. Single. Time.

    What a wretched week.

  • Bluejay

    I never saw him in this. And now that I want to, it doesn’t seem to be legally streaming or physically available anywhere. (I’m afraid the $550 “acceptable” used copy on Amazon — a Zone 2 Blu Ray shipping from France, to boot — doesn’t work for me.)


  • Yeah, same here. I want to see this movie, but it’s not available anywhere. How stupid.

  • Breninar

    Itʻs at my local library. Try interlibrary loan. 50 cents!
    Uh, if you happen to be in the US…

  • And if it’s still in watchable shape after so many years…

  • Bluejay

    It’s not available for circulation at any of New York’s three library systems. I suppose I could do ILL, but library DVD’s tend to be scratched and sometimes unplayable on my computer.

    It’s kind of ridiculous that it’s not available. It’s not THAT old and obscure a film. And even obscure niche-interest artifacts like, say, “Flight of Dragons” ARE available on Amazon, if only as DVD-Rs on demand. Maybe renewed interest in Rickman’s work will mean this film will be easily accessible again soon.

  • Danielm80

    It appears to be available on a popular video website (as you probably know by now). I usually oppose that sort of copyright violation, but when there’s no other reasonable alternative, a case could be made for watching it that way.

    Or maybe the renewed focus on Rickman’s career will encourage someone to release a new edition of the movie.

  • Bluejay

    Ahhh! Didn’t even think to check there. Thank you.

  • I bet there’s some sort of rights issue when it comes to music. This tends to be the sort of thing that holds up wide distribution on home-video channels.
