Most Wanted Films That Are Unavailable On DVD

There are a number of these films that have been on my list for about a decade now and still no findey. Im sure I could do the piratebay thing on a number of them, but thats a pain in the ass and Id much rather just have the "real thing" (its not so much an ethics thing as it is an aesthetic thing). Still, I dont mind if people want to email me links to the films or somewhere to find said film (and not for a gajillion dollars!)

NOTE: There are plenty on here that are available on PAL, but Im in the US so that wont work -- need NTSC.

**WORK IN PROGRESS-STAY TUNED**
