I saw this classic film at the cinema when it came out and found it truly astounding, a true cinematic experience. I can't think of another film that is anything like it, it is truly unique. I loved the soundtrack too, but I only bought Neil Diamond's single "Be" at the time; although I've had the soundtrack CD for years as well now. I recorded the film from the TV onto Betamax video in the early '80s, but I haven't been able to watch it for years through lack of a player!! I don't know if it has been shown on TV again in the recent past, but I've always missed it if it has.
It was also a film I tried for years to find on DVD, but always without success - even when looking all around the world. So I was very pleasantly surprised recently, when I thought about the film again, to find that it had finally been issued on DVD - and quite a while ago too.
Although a child of it's time, and although it does loose a bit of scale on the small screen, it is still a magical experience. Old Hippies everywhere will love it.
It's a shame, in a way, that there is not a Bonus Feature in sight, but then again these may just have spoilt the illusion by making the experience too real! Buy it and fly!!
