What a revelation! Watched this last night and would echo all the positive comments above. Would urge members to buy this in the hope that it might encourage Second Run to release more of what appears to be an extensive filmography if Peter Hames's sleeve notes are anything to go by.

It was another blind-buy from Second Run and I'm glad I took the plunge. Excellent film. If SR ever consider a Blu-Ray, I'd buy again.

"A tremendous piece of cinema... stands mightily as an astonishing work of art even when isolated from its political context. The reality of modern film viewing is fluid. It's unattached to any such political movements and those viewers unaware or unwilling to fully immerse themselves in the necessary context shouldn't be punished. The truly excellent artistic endeavors always exist outside the boundaries in which they were created, and All My Good Countrymen is no different. The film is a miracle of narrative expression"

Mondo Digital on ALL MY GOOD COUNTRYMEN thinks you should be

"astonished by Second Run's UK DVD, which comes from a recent 4K restoration of the film courtesy of the Czech National Film Archive. As you'd expect, it looks immaculate and pushes the limits of SD about as far as they can go."

"[Jasny] has a gift for creating stunning compositions... a deeply personal, stylized, and mythic cinematic elegy to a traditional way of life... Jasny’s pastoral idyll may be touched by sentimentality but it’s a magical work"
