    Looking for a recommended e-tailer that does a good range of World Cinema, e.g. like stuff shown at the Curzon cinemas in London.

    Hi Alec,

    DO you want just Region 2 UK DVD's, or can you play discs from the US or Australia?

    If you just want Region 2 stuff, then stick with Play.com.

    If you want stuff from across the waters, look for www.play247.com (the Region 1 version of Play.com - obviously), or DC-DVD, or Movietyme, or hundreds of others.

    You can also check out Ezy-DVD, in Australia, for Region 4 discs. Australia plays their discs in the UK-PAL TV format, and most of there discs are also encoded for Region 2 machines as well. DIscs are quite reasonably priced, and most deliveries to the UK, take about a week, from the time you place your order.

    Have never looked at moviemail before - it looks a good website to browse, but it's by no means the cheapest place to buy. Most of the "world cinema" DVDs are full retail price, ie aorund £20.

    Bensons World has a good selection, at competitive prices, and regular has World Cinema promotions, as indeed does Play.

    I buy a lot of Criterion titles, and have found CD-Wow are usually quite good, although their overall range is limited.

    Worth mentioning that, although DVD Beaver do not retail themselves, it is a fabulous website and has links to where DVDs may be purchased (predominantly Amazon).
