Gentlemen, will you share your work with your fellow board members? I would be happy to come to you if that would help make it possible. In fact, I just checked with my airline, and they've got a mileage awards flight I can afford departing this Saturday for Vancouver. Say the word, and I will be with you this weekend. (I hope that doesn't sound too scary).

Now amazon is reporting a July 31 release date.
Now they're saying Aug. 14.

Wow, absolutely fabulous. Fantastic news. And man, the guy writing the article did a great job, too!

Yeah, I made my own cut...

Tell us more ...

I have a lot of ideas what a perfect version should look like. I even think that some of the shoot-outs (especially the turkey chase shoot-out) should be cut differently, like such scenes are always cut in Peckinpah films.

Rip Torn passed away recently, so I thought I'd revisit one of his best starring roles:

Tropic of Cancer (1970) - Down and out and getting laid in Paris. Joseph Strick, having adapted Joyce's Ulysses, decided (I guess) to take on yet another literary challenge. It was a deft stroke to get Rip Torn for the part of Henry Miller. Torn usually does a lot of his acting with his eyes, but here a considerable amount of the performance has to be credited to his teeth. Was that makeup, or were his choppers really that ugly? There's a lot of female nudity in this film. An uncredited Ellen Burstyn shows up at the beginning and goes full frontal. It's not a bad as you might think--in fact, Ellen in 1969/1970 looked pretty good without clothes. She only turned dumpy later.

Yeah, I made my own cut... (The 2005 cut was almost the one to go for, unfortunately
they made some terrible mistakes.). I don't think a lot about that film, it is all too sad:
the 2005 HD version was screened at the Berlin festival back then, yet it was never released
on Blu-ray... Warners just don't care. I could make a fine feature-length doc using
all the interviews I filmed + some nice ones from the film's set etc. etc.
I rather forget about it :).

Going by the many previous discussions on this matter on this forum and others I think "most" might easily disagree  :)

Yeah, probably ...

... but wait for the Stanton cut!
