Where can I buy Suriyothai?

I have never purchased a Thai movie and am trying to find a good place to pick this one up.

HKFlix has it, but it's kind of pricey at $32.95

Giles,

Thanks, I should have known you would come through for me. Have you seen this by any chance? That is a little pricey, but I do not mind so much if it is a great movie!

No, I haven't unfortunately. I know this is an awful thing to say but if I could find it cheaper I would buy it. Of the few things I have read about this movie, they have been very positive and sound truly spectacular and epic. With all these discs I am buying in November I am going to put this on hold and wait til the Holiday season releases subside.

Found this on imdb.com:

Coppola May Release Thai Epic In U.S.


Francis Ford Coppola is in advanced talks to oversee a re-edit of the Thai epic Suriyothai, according to the British trade publication Screen International. The $14-million film, about a legendary Thai queen who was killed defending her country against Portuguese and Burmese invaders in the 16th century, closed the Pusan International Film Festival on Saturday. Directed by Prince Chatrichalerm Yukol, a classmate of Coppola's in film school 30 years ago, Suriyothai currently runs three hours and five minutes. (It originally ran eight hours.) Coppola is expected to shorten it further and perhaps reshoot certain scenes. "It was always in my mind to do an international version. Western audiences are less interested in the details of Thai history and would prefer to see it as a cultural experience and entertainment," Prince Chatrichalerm told Screen International.

You can try these sites:

http://www.movieseer.com/dvdprofile....=636&Channel=2
It is 789 Baht or 18$ but the shipping is so expensive. You can easily add another 18$...

or

http://64.26.19.98/cgi-bin/shop.pl/p...29497949.20609


BUT, I don't have any feedback about these sites so....

Thanks,

I looked at the policies at Thainetcity.com and shipping looks risky. It is probably worth the additional cost to get it from HKFlix, should also be able to get it much more quickly.
