"Paris, Texas" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues For UK Buyers With The ‘US’ Release...But Available Also In The UK...,
This review is from: Paris, Texas [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
As you've probably gathered most of the reviews are for the 'DVD' version of this classic Americana film “Paris, Texas” (complete with sublime Ry Cooder music). And the BLU RAY has long been available in the States and several other territories. But which issue do you buy if you live in Blighty?
Unfortunately the uber-desirable USA Criterion release is REGION-A LOCKED - although it doesn't say so on Amazon. 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.
Luckily the Axiom Issue from 2013 is REGION B - so that will play on UK machines (and it uses the same cleanly restored elements).
So check your player’s region coding acceptability if you want the pricier Criterion release (which is said to have a stunning transfer)...if not…opt for the UK released BLU RAY at a far healthier price…
