new, £9.60 sterling on buy it now, used, but rare film that is almost impossible to get in the UK, you have to order from abroad to get it. the price here is the same as new, maybe even higher than it would be new over here, plus being ntsc it would have to be converted and burtnt as pal to play in UK standalones, but guess everyone can do that

I'm not familiar with that Vonnengut work; have you read the original yet?

it's a short-short

the film adds a hundred pages, changes the ending, etc, etc.

but this is one film that demands to be in a scifi fans collection

Had a chance to read the short story.... it's definitely a quick & fast punch to the brain with it's subject matter. Now Mr. D' has me curious about tracking down a copy of the movie.

it's very, very hard to find. gets shown once in a blue moon on tv, a few vhs copies going round, but they are probably degraded by now. dvd's even rarer, which is why i tried to post up the dvd i found (but failed due to any number of psychotic issuesd running through my brain at the point i was trying to do it!!!)

it's not an amazing film, but it is pure scifi in that the environment the characters work in socially is twisted enough to make a difference.

bearing in mind Vonnegut put in his works anything he currently wanted to rant about. government, organisations, nothing remained untouched from a market that sucked up all his outrageous works.

if you read Breakfast Of Champiions, you are faced with what looks like a kids/teenagers book, with drawings of animals and automobiles, etc spaced throughout the book!!!!

unique, literate, effective! Vonnegut is one of the greats.
