Brilliant Collection BUT Beware!,
This review is from: Criterion Collection: David Lean Directs Noel [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This is a wonderful collection.All four films are restored to a quality hitherto unseen here before.
HOWEVER and it is a BIG however - This Criterion set is Region A Locked - that is Bluray Region A locked.
So unless you have a Blu-ray machine that has been "doctored" it will NOT play these discs.All one gets is a message on the screen saying that these discs are not made for this region.Alternatively one must purchase an american machine and have it shipped over.
Criterion are region locking all of their new Blu-ray issues so it is well to understand which discs are playable here in europe.
I would suggest the website [...] - it reviews all the DVD/Blu-ray issues from all over and distinguishes between the different regions. With Blu-rays there is normally a notation on whether it is "locked" or not.
So I would give 5 stars to this collection. (as long as you can play it.)
