Top 5 Movies I Want to See But Are Not Easily Available (DVD or Bluray)

   specifically in the United States

  1. Voyage to Italy  (Rossellini, 1954)
  2. A Brighter Summer Day  (Yang, 1991)
  3. Love Exposure  (Sono, 2008)
  4. Two Weeks in Another Town  (Minnelli, 1962) – Warner Archive collection*
  5. Arizona Dream  (Kusturica, 1993) – Warner Archive collection*
Honorable Mention: Norwegian Wood  (Hung, 2010) – available in the UK
*made to order dvds from Warner (but the quality is questionable)
I am excited for the Citizen Kane bluray Amazon Exclusive with The Magnificent Ambersons DVD (which is ludicrous that Ambersons is not on bluray, but at least it will be on DVD for the first time).

I will have to revise my Top Ten Movies That Need a Bluray Release since Kane is on the honorable mentions and The Three Colors Trilogy will be out on Criterion bluray in November.

I've seen Norwegian Wood at a cinema but to be honest I wasn't overly enthusiastic. It got a 3/5 out of me. There were a lot of pretty images from the Japanese countryside, but the characters felt shallow and the storytelling didn't catch me. I WANTED to like it badly, but I couldn't. It's possible that this is one of those novels that are hard to transfer to the screen format. Again: you may have different opinion. But from my point of view I wouldn't cry over not seeing it.

awww...i don't even know if it will get a US release. i just love Tran Anh Hung's earlier works so much (Scent of Green Papaya, Cyclo, and Vertical Ray of the Sun). i even want to see his (what looks like a disaster of a movie) I Come with the Rain.
