Not a lot of movies are released exclusive to Bittorrent. The American Prince is the latest movie, or shall we call it documentary, that is exclusively distributed this way. What probably makes it even more interesting is the fact that it was produced by well known director Tommy Pallotta who made great movies such as A Scanner Darkly in the past. Tommy decided that it was time to bring Scorcese's lost documentary 'American Boy' back to life by creating this film and distributing it on a channel that everyone in the world has access to.

Scorsese original documentary was shot more than thirty years ago and influenced many film makers including Quentin Tarantino who used one of the stories of the documentary in his Pulp Fiction movie (the one with the adrenalin shot to the heart). Since the movie was never officially released Pallotta had to collect materials from other sources like Bittorrent or Youtube to get the film done. While he did get a master copy of the film from Steven Prince himself he discovered an even better copy on the Bittorrent network.

The movie can be directly downloaded from Bittorrent. The torrent is linked at Mininova. The movie has a size of about 420 Megabytes. It is already listed on IMDB with a 9.1 rating although it probably will go down when more users start voting.

Update: The film has since then been uploaded to the popular video hosting site YouTube where it can be watched directly. Its uploader unfortunately has disabled embedding of the movie on third party sites, which means that you need to head over to YouTube directly to play it there.

American Prince there is divided into six parts which you can watch one after the other on the site. Click here to watch the first part.

    And for those looking for a decent alternative that’s free and free from ads plus other crap (though I would recommend donating), then try qBittorrent:

    Why not use the portable version of uTorrent?

    Just downlad the .exe from official website into a folder, create a text file in the same folder, rename the .txt file to settings.dat and start uTorrent. You can move the folder anywhere.

      ^Exactly…. in fact I would recommend avoiding all versions over 2.0, the torrent portion of the program hardly changed, it’s all the ads, ratings, and possible tracking features that require all the additional installs.

      And this is why I never updated in a nutshell;

      More Ads (hit decline offer)
      Even more ads (hit decline)”

      Nope. I donated $25 several years ago to the utorrent crew.. possibly a decade… so I refuse to accept their reasoning for selling out so much.

        You can turn off the ads.

    I’m a long long time user of Bitcomet now and forever. Never any ads, no offers, nothing to decline, no sell out… little used due to the complex nature they still scare people away with, but their new install is a simple one click solution that discovers all settings on its own except firewalls.

    They follow a simple idea…’share’… if you share you can possibly go faster than those who don’t share. You can even see connections* connected to you and of them who is sharing and who isn’t… then you can boot them / ban them or ignore them selectively ‘mwahahaha…’. We can set how much we share, with who, and how fast we share.

    *in my personal experience over 95% of Azures and uTorrent users do not share, I boot them.

    So those who believe Bitcomet is hard to understand, they haven’t been that since version 1.09a (current public release 1.35). Also Bitcomet installs a Firefox add-on to capture media from the temp directory. You can easily unload it using Firefox’s Add-on Options page.

    Bottomline, Bitcomet is faster and easier to install/use. Signing up as a registered user will allow you to join the ranks as a sharing user. The more you share, the faster you can possibly go.

    utorrent installs itself in appdata folder so it can inject malware without the UAC consent. Don’t use utorrent because it’s unsafe!

    The best last version of utorrent is 2.2.1 build 25534
