I've just made a few purchases recently from some of the overseas Amazon websites. Some movies are being released in other countries, that have not been released on Blu-Ray in America.
I will share with you what I have bought as imports:
From Japan, I've bought the Blu-Rays of:
Shanghai Triad (Gong Li)
Metropolis (Japanese anime)
From France, I've bought:
A Very Long Engagement (Audrey Tautou)
Phantom of the Paradise (Paul Williams)
From Germany, I've bought:
From Canada, I've bought:
The Trailer Park Boys Movie (the first one)
From Korea, I've bought:
Taigukgi: The Brotherhood of War
From England, I've bought:
The Elephant Man
From India, I've bought many Bollywood films (however, they are available through Amazon's US website, however, I still got one import:
Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (however, it's an annoying censored version. Any nudity, no matter how subtle, has been cut out) Indians and their warped sense of morality: bloodshed, disrespect for one another, and police brutality are all okay to them, but heaven forbid should the beauty of the naked female body be exposed, they feel that they must remove it from the film before showing it in India. What a warped sense of values. Anyway...
.....nowadays, it's very easy to find region Free disc players. Most every film here, that I've listed is Region-Free anyway. If you have one, you can watch any movie from any country.
Who else has discovered great films that seem to be only released on Blu-ray overseas?
