In addition to Razorback, which is due next month, the preorder for Alex Proyas' SPIRITS OF THE AIR, GREMLINS OF THE CROWD is now live.https://www.umbrellaent.com.au/coming-s ... enres.html.

I haven't seen it, myself. Can anyone here recommend it?

Bruce Beresford's Ladies in Black has been released on Blu Ray and is region free (I tested in the disc in my Region A player and it played fine), and the back of the box states ABC. Whilst is has narration for the vision impaired and English subtitles for the hearing impaired there are no other special features to speak of. Visually it looks great.

I still haven't heard if that's even going to get a UK release. There's a showing of it in London in March, which Beresford will be introducing, so all going well that's when I'll see it, and I'm looking forward to it.

Hi!

Is DeVoteD DVD in South Morang still Active? I´m thinking principally of the mail order service.
The website is here: http://www.devoteddvd.websyte.com.au/si ... evoteddvd/
Inactive url: http://www.devoteddvd.com.au/

Thanks very much in advance for any info!

I can’t say for certain, but I think they’re (sadly) gone; for a few years now.

Having just finally relented and bought the Criterion DVD, of course it is.

It is very difficult to get Australian DVDs and CD's these days (at least to US) due to Covid. It took over two months for me to get a box of classical music CD's (after two cancellations by sellers).

I was going to say I hope this one lasts longer than Beyond Genres, but Umbrella said that they’ll be mentioning some further titles for the line sometime soon, and they’re working on addition/s to the B.G. sub-label as well.
