Need Some Exclusive Import Suggestions

After many years, I've finally sprung for an Oppo 103D Blu-ray player and it will be Region Free once I get it set up...now I need some GREAT recommendations for titles that are ONLY available as imports, are still in print, and don't have a Region 1 (DVD) or Region A (Blu-ray) counterpart (unless, of course, the extras/bonus material are good enough to warrant importing).

So far, my only purchase has been the 3-Disc DVD version of "Picnic at Hanging Rock", since I know the upcoming Criterion Blu-ray is going to be missing the Theatrical Cut and a lot of bonus materials.

Other than that, I'm open to suggestions...feel free to fire away or even point me to a great website you use.

Thanks...I've been considering PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE from Arrow, but it looks like it's getting an August release here, so I may hold off and see if there's a significant difference between A/V quality and extras.

Re: Need Some Exclusive Import Suggestions

Wow - thanks for the list DVDude!

I just ordered Splash today (before I saw you posted this)...I see a couple other titles on your list I'd like to pick up as well. I'm surprised I haven't been able to find a website devoted to Region B or C exclusives. I've been manually searching sites looking at titles, but it takes a long time to weed through them all.
