Bertolucci's 1900 Withdrawn From Circulation


In an amazingly inept move Paramount have apparently withdrawn their uncut special edition DVD of Bernardo Bertolucci's 1900. The disc, which was just released in December, features the longest cut of the film ever released in America as well as two solid featurettes. It is currently still readily available from online retailers, and I'm sure in some stores, but according to rareoopdvds.com the disc has been officially withdrawn.
For those you haven't got a copy of this amazing film, get it while you can. This recent development is just another sad chapter in this wonderful film's history that has been marked by censorship issues since it was first unveiled 31 years ago.
