Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

So, is it "The Pianist" or "The Pianiste"?

I might have to buy a multi-region BD player just for Mulholland Dr. and Le Cercle Rouge.

afaik a lot (if not all) of the StudioCanal digibooks have been region A B, so you shouldn't need to.

However most of these should (presumably) make their way to the States at some point or another under the Lionsgate umbrella.

Some very important ones are RB, like Belle de jour.

No, Korean, but it'll be the first region free release of the movie on Blu to my knowledge. CJ's releases are terrific as well, so it's totally worth importing.

I'm not into importing... I might have to make an exception for this movie though...

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

It will also very likely be the longer Korean cut of the film.

You've got my fucking attention. I didn't know it was cut, at least I don't remember that I do. Now...I'll check up on those details as to what was cut.

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

It is like 11 minutes that was in the original cut shown at Cannes. I'm not sure those 11 minutes were even in the Korean theatrical cut. Maybe they were. The DVD from Korea has the same stuff.

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

Here's a look at BFI's upcoming slate. No info on extras and region-coding except where noted.

21 June

The Adelphi Collection: Is Your Honeymoon Really Necessary (1953) & My Wife’s Lodger (1952)
The Adelphi Collection showcases long-neglected works produced by this family-run British film studio. This second release is a double-bill of rare, early Diana Dors comedies. Also starring Sid James. Dual Format Edition
REGION-FREE

19 July

The films of Yasujiro Ozu – an extensive new BFI DVD project launching in Dual Format Editions
- Tokyo Story (1953) & Brothers and Sister of the Toda Family
- Late Spring (1949) & The Only Son
- Early Summer (1951) & What did the Lady Forget?
REGION B

23 August

Loving Memory (Tony Scott, 1970) Now one of Hollywood's most bankable UK ex-pats (The Hunger, Top Gun, True Romance, Enemy of the State and many more), the then 26 year-old Tony Scott's first feature is set on the Yorkshire moors and follows the story of a brother and sister living alone with their memories and a macabre secret. Dual Format Edition

A Zed & Two Noughts (Peter Greenaway, 1985)
This extraordinary tale of obsession, scored by Michael Nyman, is provocative, funny and stylish. Blu-ray REGION-FREE

The Edge of the World (Michael Powell, 1937)
A Blu-ray debut for the film which established the daring techniques and experimentation that would become familiar hallmarks of Michael Powell’s esteemed career

The Innocents (Jack Clayton, 1961)
Deborah Kerr gives the performance of her career in one of the greatest of all ghost stories on film – an intensely unsettling experience. Blu-ray REGION B

13 September
BFI Flipside 012 & 013 released on Dual Format Editions:

Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush (Clive Donner, 1968)
A long-awaited release for this lively comedy following the sexual exploits of the irrepressible teenager Jamie (Barry Evans), full of adolescent energy and angst in 1960s Stevenage

Bronco Bullfrog (Barney Platts-Mills, 1969)
This leading cult film of the late 1960s is one of the finest records of Mod culture in British cinema

Prostitute (Tony Garnett, 1980)
Gritty and ground-breaking film about sex-workers in the Midlands. Dual Format Edition

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

Aside from eBay, what online retailer do you guys typically use to pick up Australian Blu-rays -- EzyDVD, or another?

Re: Foreign Cinema in BLU (part 2)

I've never ordered an Australian Blu-ray, but I've placed a couple of relatively inexpensive DVD orders from Chaos DVD, both of which included free shipping.
