Only a few titles are listed in this link, but it looks like a bunch of other titles are on sale as well:

Awesome. Already in for 8 1/2, but will probably go back and buy a few more. Thanks!

Does no one else find it fishy that the only titles on sale begin with "A-E"?

Maybe it's a database bug and there should be titles for the rest of the alphabet as well?

I noticed that as well - these titles are also cheaper than usual:

Diabolique
Bob Le Flambeur
Videodrome
Peeping Tom
Fiend Without A Face
Naked
Heaven Can Wait
Jules and Jim
Port of Shadows
M
Wages of Fear
Most Dangeorus Game
The Ruling Class
Vanishing

There are probably other titles, but these were the ones I was looking to buy myself. When I called DDD asking how long the sale was going on for, the representative had no answer for me, and neither did his superior. I couldn't even get him to commit to it lasting a week. Most annoying. How do they have no idea how long their own sale is going on?

Cool. Thanks.

Going to pick up Rififi, Bob Le Flambeur, Videodrome, and M. Not too shabby for 77 bucks and change.

Is Fassbinder's BRD Trilogy worth the purchase? I enjoyed Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, but not really familiar with the rest of his work. Great price on a box set

Man, Rushmore is 30.00. I can't see myself spending 30-40.00 on a single disc DVD.

Yes. It is a good deal more expensive than the standard release, but the commentary by Hunter S. Thompson is more than worth it, IMO.

These prices are just as good as you'll find in the 20% off sales, so if you want it, this is the time. Other e-tailers are around $29.99 for this release.

Damn you NoirFan, just kidding, got me with the Medium Cool news and you got me this one too. I don't know what to get here but I will be definately getting Band of Outsiders and maybe Le Samourai. I would really like to get L'eclisse, Videodrome, Bad Timing, Burden of Dreams, Naked, Mamma Roma, Secret Honor, Stray Dog etc. but I digress.

You may want to check out DVDpricesearch before buying. They still have yesterday's prices so you can see if whether a particular price is better now or during the 20% sale.

It looks like the first 8 1/2 pages are the 45% deals (e.g. 39.95 reduced to 21.97 & 29.95 reduced to 16.47). After that, the discounts are all over the map. Of course, most of the titles I want are in the second half (sigh), but at least I'll pick up Charade and Fellini's 8 1/2. I'll wait on the rest.

Yeah, VIRIDIANA and KIND HEARTS & CORONETS are still cheaper at DVD Planet. Maybe they will drop the prices on the rest before the sale ends.
