Just a reminder that Local Hero has been re-released on DVD and Blu-ray today. It has been released by the good folks at Criterion, so this is bound to be a good transfer, with excellent sound. My Blu-ray copy just arrived today, but I am resisting temptation until I have a day off from work. There appear to be lots of extras, so this is going to be one to savor.
If you haven't seen the movie, you are in for a real treat.
p.s.: "I'd make a great Gordon, Gordon."
