Reverse Clockwork Orange

Update: Couldn't wait. Bought the DVD at Amazon UK. This will end up like Porco Rosso, biography of Fidel Castro, the original British version of "Traffick" and other films that are curiously not available.

Stanley Kubrick's film "Clockwork Orange" was banned in Britain (and may still be) and now Ken Loach's film "The Wind that Shakes the Barley" may be banned (oh, sorry, you can't say that...the word is "raised an eyebrow") in the US. You see, it concerns revolution and terrorists --the Irish.

The US release date was supposedly November 6th, but I haven't seen a trace of the film.
