I had the misfortune of watching a terrible version of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" on late-night TV last night. I nearly had convulsions - it was pan-and-scan and hacked down to 90 minutes (from 161) INCLUDING COMMERCIALS. Is there any hope for humanity?

Your local cinemateque recently showed a new, optically-restored print of the film. It looked AWESOME. We're talking razor-sharp, even by today's standards. If they bring it back next year, don't miss it.

Yup, they showed the trilogy. The Cinematheque is one of the best parts about living in Cleveland.

Amen Craig. Also, hearkening to your Avatar, there is going to be a showing of "Paths of Glory" there in mid-April. I've never seen this film in its entirety, and of course, have never seen any of it on the big screen. I'll definitely be there to see this Kubrick gem.

Regards.
