I was under the impression that you caught it on the big-screen (like I did, twice).

Facets got the DVD so I got it too. Poverty prevented me from seeing it on the big screen.

I know what you mean. I really wanted to attend the screening of Antonio das Mortes recently but with the gas and the ticket prices as they are now it would've amounted to a yet another $40+ trip, so I had to make-do with the third generation tape that I have.

It's good to see that Facets is keeping up with the imports.

Not bad, but you never know what they're going to get and when, luckily there's more than enough to watch while I wait.

Btw, next time you're there could you please check with them if they actually did release a new German film called Bungalow? I haven't been able to confirm that. Thanks, dude.

It's a 2002 film directed by Ulrich Köhler (my post). Facets was supposed to release the DVD late last year.

Oh New Yorker is releasing it, so give or take a year?

I did however find they released The Last Supper in relatively short time, so maybe there's hope with that dreadful company.

At least a year. It would've been funnier if I had specified '08, or, better yet, '08 - '11. Here's hoping that Bellocchio's The Wedding Director is also in the works.
