Great film, but $46? And the studios wonder why they're losing money to illegal downloads...
Sealed with a curse as sharp as a knife. Doomed is your soul and damned is your life.

The price seems a bit much, but... I'll wait and see how heavily Amazon discounts this title and/or wait for the inevitable price drop at some point in the future. I have plenty of films and television to watch and have learned to be patient when it comes to titles I consider over-priced. - Walter.
Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Amazon has it for $31 now. It'll go lower, but if it doesn't Almodovar better come to my house and present it to me.
