At last! ARIZONA DREAM, starring Johnny Depp, available on DVD in the U.S.

Three cheers for the Warner Archive Collection! They have released Emir Kusturica’s award-winning 1993 film Arizona Dream on DVD and digital download, giving Johnny Depp fans in the United States the option of easily purchasing a legal copy. You can order Arizona Dream HERE. Although the film has long been available on DVD in Europe, Americans had to search for bootlegs or imports on Ebay, since Arizona Dream was never released on DVD in region 1. The coming-of-age story stars Johnny Depp as Axel Blackmar and features a wonderful ensemble of actors including Faye Dunaway, Lili Taylor, Jerry Lewis, and Vincent Gallo. Arizona Dream won a Special Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Warsaw International Film Festival.

Johnny Depp will work with director Emir Kusturica again next year, playing Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa in Kusturica’s Wild Roses, Tender Roses, which will co-star Salma Hayek.
