I can't fathom why The Reflecting Skin and The Haunting of Julia (with Mia Farrow) haven't been released in the US on shiny spinning discs. Both fantastic films that I have been hankering to view again but it would require hacking of my DVD player and buying region (elsewhere) discs. What films do you wish were available on DVD but are not?

well after longing for it on dvd for the past 10+ years, they finally released The Wolves (Shussho Iwai original title) on dvd

it's my favorite Japanese yakuza film, directed by Hideo Gosha in the early 70s iirc, starring Tatsuya Nakadai

amazing movie, and its release was loooong overdue.

otherwise, I have a lot of 50s J.D. films on VHS that would be nice to have on dvd but I realize there isnt much market for them

The Seduction of Joe Tynan. Best political film ever made.

I think it may have been released on DVD but it is impossible to find. It needs to be reissued.

Probably not a big demand for, but I would like to see Downhill Racer on DVD.
