35mm Print of Eyes Wide Shut on Ebay!!
Time

Unfortunately, I cannot donate at the moment. But if you need any help cleaning up some frames, it would be an honour to help restore this great film. I’ve worked on restoring frames before. currently, I am restoring a 16mm trailer for Pink Flamingos.

if you want to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to Private message me, as I would love to help with this project!
cheers, have a great day!

Pink Flamingos (1972) - Uncut VHS Preservation (Released)
Time

This is just information I found about Pink Flamingos, not Multiple Maniacs. but it’s the internet, so my source may be wrong. I agree with your points, 100%.

Update: I emailed criterion asking if it was the original uncut version PF and this is what they replied…


I can confirm that our upcoming release of PINK FLAMINGOS is the original, uncut version: https://www.criterion.com/films/31320-pink-flamingos. I hope this clarifies any confusion.

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and thanks for your interest in Criterion!


So it’s confirmed that it is the uncut OG version. but I don’t believe it will have that original soundtrack due to copyright issues. But that’s ok.
I wonder if they will store those original deleted scenes?
Have a great day

The Blu-ray coming from criterion has a 4K scan. The Film they scanned was the EXACT same film that John waters (The director) used to splice and edit the film together. That exact print they scanned was in John Waters’ attic for decades. unless criterion cut scenes from that scanned print (Which I highly doubt they did)
seeing that criterion released “Salo: or the 120 days of sodom”, I think it’s safe to say that Pink Flamingos will be the uncut version. thankfully.
Hope this helps.
Can’t wait to see the new restoration from criterion because PF is one of my favourite films of all time.
