The earlier release on Media in 1978 uses an exceedingly scratchy print and has two segments missing that are viewable on the later Harmonyvision release. They are, respectively, a proctology TV ad (that appears just after the Midas Touch Cleaning Fluid ad) and the "Convert. The Church Is Changing" spot, which appears towards the film's end (right after the Dinner Bars commercial). The latter spot features a woman, dressed as a priest, stripping in front of a church window. The former features a line of bare men's bottoms. It isn't clear why these scenes are missing (the film is still pretty explicit without them), but both are entact on the later Harmonyvision release, which also boasts a much-better source print.

Tunnel Vision is a unique sort of grindhouse film. It is a feature-length collage of comedy sketches, loosely tied together by a simple (and not terribly important) framing mechanism. The production values are rather low, very rough around the edges in the same way the Python TV show was, but the humor here comes across nonetheless. Those of you with delicate taste, beware. The comedy in this film is extremely dark, savage, and mercilessly satirical. It takes on the the TV-junkie generation, ripping into network television with energy and vehemence. If you like dark humor and satire, like Terry Southern or Robert Downey, Sr., you will probably like this film. Just don't expect glossy visuals or a strong central narrative.
