    Anybody ever see this flick? I saw it a long time ago and loved it. It has Tim Roth & Gary Oldman as the two main guys. I heard it came out on DVD but then htey stopped production for some reason. I'd really like to get my hands on one of these, anybody here have one or know where I can get a copy?
    [edit]
    hmm, anybody ever buy from these people?

    Nate,

    This has never been on DVD in the US. I didn't even know it was available in Australia. I'm holding out hope that it will someday be issued letterboxed, because the pan & scan on this particular film is horrific. VHS copies might be found on eBay, and the rare laserdisc as well, but at higher cost.

    I've purchased from ezydvd before, and if you end up buying the import, they are trustworthy. It would only cost you about $10 US plus shipping, so if you have a player capable of region 4 and PAL conversion, it's an affordable purchase.

    It is a great film, though. This was the first time I saw either Roth or Oldman, though I was aware at the time that Oldman did Coppola's Dracula. It is definitely a departure from the roles they have become famous for.

    Yeah I didn't even know it was available in Austrailia either until I did a look on google the other day (I remember I tried looking for it in the past and found nothing). My player can't read discs in PAL or Region 4 so that won't work :-/

    Ah welll, I just hate to settle for VHS. I wonder why they haven't released it on DVD in the US?

    Nitpicking department chiming in: that's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, not what the topic says. [​IMG]
