“Sanjuro” on BLU RAY – Compatibility Issues For UK and EUROPEAN Buyers…,
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Sanjuro [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
At present this 1962 Japanese classic is only available on BLU RAY in the States.
But therein lies a problem for UK and European buyers…
The US issue is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't).
Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.
Until such time as someone like the BFI gives “Sanjuro” a REGION B and C release – check your BLU RAY player has the capacity to play REGION A – before you buy the pricey Criterion issue…
