Is there an Ishtar DVD I don't know about?

Prisamata said...

Elaine May?

Didn't Warren "golden hands" Beatty directed it?

swac said...

Nope, May directed, and it killed her directing career, which is a real shame.

To this day, I'm not really sure why the film has the lousy reputation it does.

It's never been released on DVD here, but the version I have came with dual Spanish-English audio tracks, so my guess is it's commercially available in the Old World.

That's true of far too many movies.

I saw it on VHS several years ago and figured it must be awful after all the horrid reviews. But I enjoyed it.
