Excellent film that, to my knowledge, has never even been released on dvd...I remember a VHS copy from years ago. Would love to see this film finally released and given credit due! Diane Keaton was amazing in this film and it's a great slice of 70's disco, creepy nightlife, atmosphere! I've always wondered if this wasn't released on dvd because of music rights issues, as there are a lot of great disco tunes used on the soundtrack. Also a great chance to see a very young Richard Gere and Tom Berenger!!! C'mon Paramount...release this one already!

Couldn't agree more. I've only ever seen it edited. Even then, it was compelling. I am sure it has to do with the music rights. Wonder if there is a way to light a fire under Paramount.

There's a very nice DVD-quality anamorphic widescreen version of this floating around on the web; I've searched in vain for a legit source it might have been ripped from. It must have been put up uncut for streaming somewhere, or had an obscure foreign DVD release, as it's definitely professionally mastered.

Long overdue for Paramount to clear up the music issues with this (and Little Darlings and American Hot Wax). The audiences have been waiting a good while now. Shocking something this major has been left to flounder.

This film seems to be very good.
My interest in watching it started because of Madonna's Bad Girl video-clip, which was inspired by this film. At first, I thought that the clip were made with scenes from some great film she did, 'cause it is absolutely beautiful and stunning. Also, the presence of Christopher Walken made me think it were made with scenes from some film she did.
To my disappoint, it's just a fantastic vide-clip, not a film.
Now, I need to watch this film.

LFMG is an amazing '70's flick. Great time capsule of the era, and possibly Diane Keaton's best work. Amazing 'disco/rock/pop soundtrack as well. '70's NYC may as well have been another character in the film. The novel the film is based on is also worth checking out.

[Show spoiler]Having read the novel before seeing the film, I was glad that they kept the very downbeat ending in the movie....It was also worth noting that this story was based on actual events...

Unfortunately, I've only seen this once on a sub-par print several years back; it's unavailability makes it tough to track down.

I also suspect that part/all of the reason this film hasn't made it to DVD/Blu is because of the copyright(s) involving all of the music on the soundtrack. That seems to be the typical reason that many never-released older films are being held up from being available on current home video formats.

I would really like to see this released to DVD/Blu at some point in the near future. The Criterion Collection is the perfect label/venue, since IMHO LFMG is iconic enough to deserve inclusion here.

Ive acquired the VHS and a clean bootleg DVD.

Great look into the NYC singles bar scenes of the era.

But at times its no better than a TV movie.

Too bad LFMG still isn't hasn't made it's way to Region 1 DVD/Blu-ray. It's a classic, iconic film that really deserves to be seen by a wider audience.

I suspect a lot of film fans haven't seen this due to it's unavailability on home video.
