In Italy it has been officially released on DVD:

I don't know about the quality of the american (bootleg?) release,

http://cgi.ebay.com/The-Early-Stanley-Kubrick-Collection-Fear-and-Desire_W0QQitemZ160298743107QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_DVD_HD_DVD_Blu_ray?hash=item160298743107&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

which has the advantage of having three early Kubrick's documentaries (Day of the Fight being my favourite).

I used to have this on Youtube, but I took it off A) to avoid issues with whoever owns legal rights to the movie and B) so that people would stop asking me to send DVDs of it.

Pretty interesting viewing and not a completely awful movie overall. I'd recommend getting one of the bootlegs if you want. I've got it on my computer right now.

It's awful. On the basis of evidence presented here, that Kubrick kid would never have amounted to anything.

I've never been interested in Kubrick's juvenilia--or anyone else's, for that matter.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

The one thing I did like was the editing, but whether or not that can be ascribed to Kubrick is debatable. The scene where the soldiers break into the cabin and murder a bunch of enemy troops eating dinner is the one moment where the film transcends schlock.

It was surprisingly bad. And this is coming from someone who really digs Killer's Kiss.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Killer's Kiss is a bit more polished, has a coherent story, and some nice scenes - particularly the mannequin fight.
