I read the interview with William Lustig http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/Features/bill_lustig.html He mentioned that Anchor Bay's parent company The Handleman Company had plans to either sell or shutter Anchor Bay by the end of 2003. I think that this explains why Anchor Bay almost stopped releasing very good movies and in the recent HTF talk they said that they have no interest at the moment in releasing more European films. I remember that 1-2 years ago I was buying every month 3-4 Anchor Bay releases. This year I haven't bought anything except their Wim Wenders DVDs. It is really a pity that such a good company almost stopped releasing high quality European films, and that these films are instead being released by companies who do not care much about quality of their releases (Chabrol box by Pathfinder is an example).
