I've wanted to see this forever, and was excited to see it was on iTunes. But I'm cheap, so I didn't see it until just now, because of the Youtube release (and in honor of ESB's 35th anniversary).

Awesome film! Amazing visuals and mystical atmosphere. Left me wanting more.

Speaking of, Roger Christian gives a short intro before the film on the Youtube version. He says there'll be a special announcement about Black Angel on June 2. But what kind of announcement could that be? I'm hoping for a feature length version. But there are a number of cool possibilities.

You can definitely see the influence it had on Altmans Excalibur

Perhaps also influenced Highlander with the atmosphere and Eilean Donan Castle

And of course Empire Strikes Back the dark side cave sequence

Roger talks about it on The Projection Booth, and yes, you are absolutely right.

Surely you mean Boorman's Excalibur.

Though now you've got me thinking about Excalibur as directed by Robert Altman... overlong, excessively talky, Arthur played by Elliot Gould, Guenevere played by Shelley Duvall...

Not sure how much of an influence it could have on ESB, seeing that ESB was shot first.

I think you might have 1975 and 1977 mixed up there.
