The Funeral Parade of Roses disc is terrific, definitely one of the releases of the year. The feature looks great and all those shorts make this a major archival release. Plus, there's a commentary by Chris D., for all you Border Radio fans!

Well, he was also in The Flesh Eaters and has written some casual books on Japanese genre cinema. Plus his time at the American Cinematheque was far more adventurous than anything they're doing today.

Got a reply today from Arbelos regarding the region code for their Autumn release of Hopper’s THE LAST MOVIE. They say it will be region A locked but that Carlotta will be releasing the same restoration in France and that other non-US countries may follow.

That's badass. I've wanted to see this for years and couldn't because I was threatend with physical violence (Not really) when I asked if the Facets release was any good.

Is it wrong I'm more excited by the Hopper announcement buried in the article?

The only footage I've seen related to The Last Movie is off the set and involves Dennis Hopper high off his ass on drugs in a bathtub. I've always been understood that The Last Movie is more of a curio piece than it is anything else. Could be wrong though. I certainly have no problem getting both that and Satantango.

The main problem with The Last Movie is that it was too ambitious of a concept for Hopper to pull off effectively, and his (probably) drug-influenced methods confounded the thing even more. Still, the bootleg version I saw a number of years ago was far from the worst film I've seen and I'd be interested in revisiting a properly-restored edition.

I saw a superb 35mm of The Last Movie a few months ago in NYC and it's just not a great film. Some gorgeous colors, though!
