One of the greatest films ever made, shamefully unavailable
This is definitely the most powerful experiences on screen that I have had in decades of film watching, and I am certain it is one of the greatest film ever made. I am saying this although almost forty years have passed since the week in which I saw it twice, in two consecutive days. Its superb use of visual (including mastery of semantically loaded colour photography), musical (including highly structured and meaningful manipulation of sound) and choreographic motifs, its multi-layered art/life embeddings, its overall truly cinematic nature, integratve and absolutely irreducible to any of its components -- all of these and much more are only part of the reasons why this is an unjustifiably forgotten milestone in film history. I am dismayed, frustrated and disappointed that it cannot be purchased in any accessible form -- video cassette or DVD. Will anyone rise to the challenge of correcting this miserable state of affairs? I have been searching for this film for decades, in vain.
