just wondering why I am seeing so many releases, with release dates, that now say discontinued by the manufacturer? I really want to see Gomorrah but it says discontinued by the manufacturer. Does this mean it will not be released? Thanks for any onfo you might have.

New Yorker Video, the U.S. DVD distributor for this film, went out of business a few weeks ago. Most of the New Yorker Video DVDs on the Amazon site now bear the "discontinued by the manufacturer" phrase. This may account for some of the "discontinued by the manufacturer" instances you reference.
I hope (and expect) that Gomorrah will eventually find another U.S. distributor/manufacturer.

Anyone know if this Blu-ray is region-free or will play on a US Blu-ray player?

The only thing I'm sure about is that the Blu-rays I've seen on offer so far are not designed for the U.S. market. (Blu-ray.com shows the Region A version of this title as having no release date at this time.)
The offers I've seen here previously either didn't mention the region or mentioned "Region 2" -- terminology which seems to indicate that the disc on offer is a standard DVD, not a Blu-ray at all.
I've seen this title listed on international forums variouly as region-free (Italy) and locked (England), depending on the distributor (http://bluray.liesinc.net/php?region=b).
I personally am not taking the chance, having been burned before by thinking I could view Region 2 standard DVDs on my all-region player only to discover that my TV also has to be PAL-compatible.

To all of you!! The U.S. release of Gomorrah is 18 August 2009. The reason you see different dates is because it has been release in differente countries on different dates.

Criterion has announced that they are releasing Gomorrah on Blu-ray on Nov. 24 2009 (http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=3268). I haven't been able to find any announcement of a U.S. release in August (but thanks for your post, Marianna).
The Criterion announcement just came out, and the only place I see this title for sale right now is at Criterion itself, which has it on pre-order for $31.96 (http://www.criterion.com/films/1590).

thank you for the link but I can only find the DVD version of the film on that site, not the Blu Ray.

Thank you very much for the information. I was not aware of this release. I see that this is a Region 1 standard DVD from Paradox Entertainment (Canada) in full frame format (1.33:1).
The later Criterion release I mentioned is for Blu-ray (Region A). They will also have a standard DVD release on the same day (Region 1), with both in widescreen format (2.35:1), which is close to the original theatrical format (2.39:1).

If you don't want to wait until November it's a good choice. I could not wait any longer. I had already read the book in English and Italian and I was waiting to see the movie since it came out in Italy, I had to get it.
