Despite what it says in the Amazon.com advertisement, this DVD is NOT the full 180-minute version of "Lumumba." In fact, at 109 minutes, this version is actually six minutes shorter than the "Special Edition," (also Region 1), that is listed at 115 minutes. The sleeve for this version also claims to have an English-language soundtrack, but it does not. It does have English-language subtitles to go with the French soundtrack, however. The sleeve for this version claims that it its aspect ration is 1:2.35, but that does not appear to be true, either--the aspect ratio appears to be 1:1.85, the same as the Special Edition. Because the Special Edition contains many extras--including excepts from R. Peck's excellent documentary "Lumumba: Death of a Prophet," it is clearly the better choice for anyone who wants to purchase a DVD of this film right now. Ideally, however, we should press for a release of the full 3-hour version of this film, preferably packaged together with the FULL documentary "Lumumba: Death of a Prophet." Now THAT would be a package worth paying extra for! The 2 stars above reflect the several misrepresentations associated with this particular DVD release, not the film itself, which is very good, albeit in this version in an unnecessarily truncated form.
