Obviously, a remake of this film would have been completely unnecessary but with Schrader writing and a younger Pacino acting, I would have certainly watched it. Also, had this been made, it's a safe bet that there would be a legitimate, English-friendly release of Petri's film on DVD now.
It's too bad that being a great film - or even winning an Oscar for best Foreign film - isn't enough.

...and while I'm on my soapbox. Where's Criterion, or Eclipse coming out with an English language friendly box-set of the oft negelected auteur? Even single releases of his films. Masters of Cinema, BFI, where are you? ...is anyone listening?
