Whoever imagined that Christopher Lee would end up on a Second Run DVD!

Mind you, they've just released a disc with Terry Gilliam and Tim Burton extensively featured in the extras.

But happily, they've done it without compromising their principles one iota - anyone who thinks that this is selling out clearly hasn't seen it! (I've owned the big Pere Portabella box for some time.)

Seems a bit unneccesary as the Pere box is English-friendly and very nicely-priced. Maybe if it were a blu ray or if it has some nice (non-box) extras I'd be tempted but hard to see the reasoning behind this release. Maybe one for the ever-expanding Jess Franco market?

Realistically, few people outside this forum are going to risk £40 or thereabouts on what is most likely a complete blind buy. I did, but only after it got rave reviews and multiple awards.

On the other hand, this offers a much more attractively priced entry point.

Remember that guy a decade or so ago who ranted and raved about how "pointless" Eureka's F For Fake was because it was already out on Criterion? It turned out to be one of their biggest sellers.

Grasshopper Films has this in the states. But I'll go with Second Run.

Seems a weird choice for release, but whatever gets Portabella more known is all I care about. Hopefully (not that I need this) they also include one or two of his shorter works for the sake of variety.

Second Run has confirmed that a new interview with Portabella will be included.
