A couple of personal favorites:
RAISE THE RED LANTERN
ONCE WERE WARRIORS
Not a clue
Probably one of two reasons why most "wanted" titles are not (yet) on DVD:
1. The sheer volume of catalog titles and the limited capacity of manufacturing plants to make them, as well as the limited time/staff available to the studios and compression facilities to restore/remaster them in addition to keeping up with all the big new releases.
2. Perceived lack of demand.
Clueless studios is more like it.
I'd love to have those films on DVD.
I could swear that Criterion released Once Were Warriors on laser disc a few years ago. I would hope that they eventually transfer it to DVD.
Yup, it was released by Criterion.
Once Were Warriors is available on DVD in Canada from Seville.
They have released several films on DVD that are unavailable in the U.S. such as The Hole, Lars Von Trier's The Kingdom and a reasonably priced non-Criterion edition of In The Mood For Love among others.
There's also an all-region DVD of Once Were Warriors that was released in Hong Kong on the Ocean Shores label. I picked it up in New York City Chinatown a few years ago. It's not great but it's better than nothing. It's probably still available for order online.
I'd love to see Raise the Red Lantern. I kept looking for it obviously didn't find it because I didn't realize it hadn't been released. Duh. Anyway, I hope they eventually get around to it because its a great movie.
Still waiting on Ikiru here....
Raise the Red Lantern
It's all region too.
