You should be able to find it at most video stores with a decent selection.
If you have a hard time try Kim's in NYC, Facets or Earwax in Chicago, or
Vidiots in San Francisco. Cronenberg's M. Butterfly is considered by most to
be an unsuccessful adaptation and I would agree (I'm a big fan of his other
works especially Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch and Crash).
