    just looking for a dvd to get for this weekend, and noticed this has just been released

    gets some decent comments on imdb

    I love film noir/Hitchcock, more recent films like memento/insomnia(original)

    Does this sound like my sort of thing? :confused:

    yes :blush:

    Oldboy, I only saw that it was coming out R1 on 23 Aug as it wasn't listed on play, found it on R2 now.

    I was getting *play lazy* :rolleyes: :blush: and imdb's format/region availability table was telling pork pies :censored:

    Oldboy ordered :clap:

    I'll get The Machinist on R1 later

    cheers people :thumbsup:

    Great film, though really just a rehash of Fight Club. Still very good though.

    Watched the UK version last night. Good film. A one note story but none the worse for that.
    On the back of my case its says its Region Code: 0 and DVD Format: PAL DVD 9
    Must admit I haven't slapped it in the PC to find out
