"Insignificance" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Issues For UK Buyers On This USA-ONLY Release...,
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Insignificance [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
As you've probably gathered most of the reviews are for the 'DVD' version of the 1985 cult classic “Insignificance”.
And maddeningly it’s only available on BLU RAY in the States. But therein lies a problem for UK and EUROPEAN buyers…
Unfortunately this desirable American-Only '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.
Some PS3 consoles are REGION-FREE for BLU RAY (check the specs).
So - until such time as someone sees fit to use the much-praised fully cleaned-up and restored Criterion BLU RAY transfer (the old DVDs were awful) – it looks like we’ll have to wait on this side of the pond for a BLU RAY of "Insignificance" we can actually watch without having to jump through technological hoops…

I'm sorry but Amazon actually DO tell you it's region A.

Also, all Criterion releases are Region A only. However, Amazon has a pre-order for a UK Blu-Ray release. Insignificance [Blu-ray]
Although I have no idea if and when this will get released. Hopefully soon.
