I believe wpqx was referring to Chant Of Jimmie Blacksmith.

Correct, and by that I mean Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith is unavailable, and I really don't know what any legal reasons might be. I know Killer of Sheep has been long out of print because of issues relating to its soundtrack and legal clearances in that realm, but nothing have I heard about anyone in the US even attempting to release the film, even after Schepesi's somewhat prosperous American career.

I agree with Miklosk, Picnic is excellent; in my opinion still the best i've seen from both Weir and Australia.

Darn, I still don't have the right codecs installed on my Laptop to watch my VCD of the director's cut.
Maybe I'll hold off for a Peter Weir "Director's Week". Although he is one of my favorite directors, it has been a while since I saw most of his films.
