Fantastic! I have the UK Anchor Bay release which was great. Interesting that they are going with the 1.66 ratio as all the DVD's were 1.78 or 1.85. I saw this in the cinema but can't remember the aspect ratio it was screened in. IMDb says OAR is 1.66 to 1 though.

ANYBODY interested in a truly GREAT film--
this is it x 1000
absolutely one of my favorite movies in the history of world cinema.
the first time I saw this was in an actual theater, and I was just completely mesmerized, blown away, astounded, etc. etc.
It's that good.
whatever you do, do NOT MISS getting this bd.
(fair warning--this is a true "art film" and is slow moving, subtitled, and contains some black and white scenes)
also: neither Batman nor Optimus Prime, or any terminators appear in this film.
that said--do not be scared off.

Sorry, that only happens in the 5-hour Director's Cut.

Did Linkin Park do the soundtrack for this?

If not, I'll pass.
