Outstanding and rare adds today, Jon! Awesome work!
A great find, Jon! Thank you
I saw this when it was first released in the US in the early 1970s. Even in it’s severely truncated form it cast a spell over me. But now, here fully restored to its original runtime it is not only much more powerful in impact the entire structure operates on a level of sophistication completely missing before; they are like two completely separate films bearing no relation to one another. Thanks for finding and posting this, Jon. I’ve watched it twice.
