Hello all!
I am the proud owner of a laserdisc edition of Michael Mann´s The Keep.
A film of utter beauty and mystical feeling where Mann is at his best ever!!
I know there´s been talk of a aniversary edition DVD for a VEEEEERY long time now but nothing seems to have happened after Paramount postponed the release date 2 years ago...
So to my question; Does anyone have any news about this release? I would love to see the Alex Thompson Cinematography on blu-ray really as the analogue beauty laserdisc actually surpasses most DVD´s in quality! (at least on my pioneer plasma :-) )
There is supposedly a 180min dir cut also, and an american television version of it with a longer ending.
Any info appreciated!!
Here´s a great link to browse :-) http://www.the-keep.ath.cx
All best/Fredrik

I beg to differ :-)
Insider is a feat of movie history at the top all films made; in my eyes.
