Korean R3 (R0) Grand Illusion is Actually A Criterion Transfer.

Other Classic Criterions Available

M
A Brief Encounter
Variety Lights
The Third Man
Red Shoes
Charade
The Most Dangerous Game

Bergman Films:

The Magic Flute
Wild Strawberries
The Virgin Spring
Cries and Whispers
Box Set Only - The Seventh Seal and Autumn Sonata

8 Ruscico Classics

These films are at least 5 squids cheaper some 10 squids than their western counterparts.

This is ideal for me as I always wanted to see these old black and white classics but was hard for me to justify 20 - 25 squids on them. The fact that the Koreans can licence the film and flog it cheaper than criterion only proves that they have always been ripping us off!

Uhhh...are some of these just transfers from the Criterion Laser Discs or are they NEW transfers made for DVDs? I'd guess they were the former since "Smiles Of A Summer Night" is not available on DVD yet. (Therefore the quality is probably lacking compared to a properly mastered DVD.)
