Okay, it's on tonight on digital cable in about 40 minutes. I haven't seen it yet, but have been looking forward to it. Feel free to comment while I'm gone, and I'll check in after it's done. Very Happy

That's one I missed -- let me know how you like it and I'll add it to my NetFlix rentals.

Good user rating at IMDb:

I would agree with the Sun Times review. The technique used lulled me into a complete voyeuristic fantasy world, and in a sense, it felt so real...just as if one were literally walking through this magnificent landscape as an observer. I will have to watch it again, as the technique sucks you in to the detriment of the story, and there are subtitles, which I chose to ignore, just to look at the cinematography. Brilliant work...

I've added it to my NetFlix Queue so I should be watching it within the next two weeks.

Mmm....had the pleasure to see Russian Ark again, and caught the extremely intriguing story this time around. I also saw Winged Migration....talk about eye candy! These have to be two of the most visually stimulating flicks I've seen in a LONG time.

A couple of my work colleagues saw this and absolutely raved. I read some reviews that were just overwhelmingly positive, so, I've been trying to buy a copy of the DVD for mrs. hamburger since early December. It is NOT easy to find in downtown Toronto. I seem to arrive at each shop just after they've just sold their only copy. Evil or Very Mad

It's absolutely incredible that it was all shot in one take.

Even better deal because the shipping is free (BestBuys is 6.99, a bit high):

Shipping to Canada is always a pain in the patootie. Thanks for locating those, lightwizard. I may have to arrange to send something to Setanta, and pick it up there. Not how I want to support my small, localish retailer, but desperate times ...

Expect to pay about CDN $34.00. I've not checked to see what DeepDiscount DVD charges to ship to Canada. You also have a Canadian Amazon.

We finally got our hands on a copy and watched it last night. It really was marvellous.

The DVD extra features were interesting - which is not always the case.

I'm going to try and get a copy when I go to NYC in October.

(anything's got to be cheaper than shipping it here)

Two and a half years since I started looking for this Confused

Free shipping and, unfortunately, cheaper than Our Shop:

http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com/dvd.cfm?itemID=FLA005382

Isn't this the way to visit any museum instead of that dry, stale over-narration that sounds like an art professor droning on about his favorite art? Can you imagine something similar for the Museum of Modern Art, even with a star like Tom Hanks wondering through and meeting many NYC denizens, ending up with a big jazz band at the end?

Lightwizard, thanks for the link. It had a link to a Canadian sister site with the same free shipping offer - and it appears to have The Russian Ark in stock. It can't get any better than that.

Too bad Amazon won't compete as their free shipping requires practically buying a library of DVD's as well as a higher price. Of course, it partially finances this site so I almost feel guilty linking to Discount DVD, but there it is -- can't fight with a good deal.

amazon.ca has some stuff, but it's limited in a number of areas.

I've got quite a nice shopping/dream list at amazon - but it doesn't often translate well to availability at amazon.ca Confused

I usually buy on Amazon from the links to outside sellers.
