    I just ordered this from England and will report on the transfer and whether it is region free for those interested in this film when it arrives. Good to see more films such as this out on blu ray.

    I reviewed a Criterion DVD of Billy Liar some time ago. I wonder if they still have the US rights to release it on Blu-ray?

    Their DVD is OOP, so it's unlikely - my BD is also shipping. The Criterion commentary is wonderful; damn shame we won't see it on any BD edition any time soon.

    Wondering out loud if the rights holders are amenable to a new licencing agreement with Criterion. It was issued in 2000 by Republic through an arrangement with Lumiere Pictures, followed by the Criterion release in 2004.
