there is a legitimate edition of El Topo, not from rarevideo.com but
from rarovideo.com - one letter makes the difference!
You can get it from this first class Italian mail order shop as a DVD in
Spanish with English subtitles and region code 0, but PAL!
It's the 119 minute version (125 min. originally).
If you want the complete uncensored version
you can get it from Japan
This edition is in Spanish with no English subtitles and is region coded
2, but NTSC!
With kind regards
Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin
The British video from Nouveaux Pictures is out of print.
