    It's been released on DVD in the UK by Second Run so you'd be able to get it from amazon.co.uk. Not an amazing print, but they get the best available. Second Run are a company worth supporting as they release stuff in English-friendly versions that no-one else goes near (esp. Czech/Hungarian/Polish). 8 years 6 months ago

    Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf meets George Orwell's 1984. And it totally works. 2 years 5 months ago

    Experiencing (mostly structural) abnormalities we observe - from a quite subjective point-of-view - the fear of a communist Party member who suspects that he's about to be "shut out of the system he helped run" who turns out to be a questionable opportunist himself.

    I'm glad I came across this stimulating analysis (~5.5 pages): http://eefb.org/archive/august-2012/the-ear/
