(Quote by stepeanut): I’ve resisted doing so because I believe there isn’t sufficient interest here. Most of the best boutique labels are British, and most of our members are American. Many here display ignorance, even fear, about importing BDs and DVDs. Not everyone, of course, but many. (End Quote) I don't know why people don't do it if they collect movies. The players aren't any more expensive than any other piece of gear of halfway decent quality, and they gives you valuable options (both in terms of choice and price) when it comes to collecting discs. You are no longer stuck with the idea, psychologically, that US releases are 'the only discs you can play' so your whole outlook changes. Currently I have about 30 Criterions; I also have about 30 Masters of Cinema, and the latter is the backbone of my silents collection. Another 12 or so discs are on the way from Britain as we speak. Also, you get access to smaller European and Asian labels who may have something no one else will put out. Twilight Time I may buy (if interested) when I get their sale e-mails, or when the same master of the film shows up in Britain and is put out there. This is partly where the flexibility of 'international' comes in. Example of what world-wide discs can do: I recently got two silent Ozu films that have not, to my knowledge, been put out with English inter-titles in the West. They were Japanese DVD releases, re-published in France with English titling....good luck playing that concoction on a "US-only" player... But back on track with the thread...I WANT THE BERGMAN BOX!
