I've heard a Woods, De Niro, Pesci commentary mentioned a lot of times but I wouldn't take it as written until it arrives.

I don,t konw either,I haven,t checked on Play myself yet but its possible that the single disc edition is the Portuguese[well,I think it is]one which I got from US Direct a few months back.It is in English but only has the film-quality is OK but I would advise to wait for the 2 disc set.

As far as I know there is no DVD properly available to buy of the film in the UK.

A perfect DVD release ,in my opinion,should have-

1/full version of film

2/commentary,if not by the actors than atleast by some expert on the film

3/making of doc.

4/the scenes[they do exist but supposedly have no sound]that were cut from the 41/2 or 5 hr. rough cut.,as a supplement.

Its doubtful that the DVD will have any of these but we can keep on dreaming!
