Top 5 Foreign/Arthouse/Indie films you want on Blu

Top 5 non-mainstream movies I'd like to see on bbblu:

1. The City of Lost Children - this would look amazing, I think.

2. Tokyo Olympiad - if you haven't seen it, you must. Amazing documentary.

3. Requiem for a Dream - amazing cinematography, I think it'd make a great BD.

4. Metropolis - Here's a test...could they make an amazing HD transfer from whatever sources they currently have? The Kino DVD looked pretty nice, considering...

5. Le Pacte des Loups (Brotherhood of the Wolf) - I think this is on HD DVD already, but it needs to make it over to Blu!



6. City of God - sorry, couldn't stop at five.


Anyone else?

I'll take either version, but would love the original series, definitely.

Aguirre: The Wrath of God
Distant Voices, Still Lives
Election
(Johnny To)
In The Mood For Love
Raise the Red Lantern


Not sure if they qualify as "arthouse" films, but I'd certainly snap up Terrence Malick's films if they came out on HDM, too.

I haven't seen Nightwatch or Daywatch yet, but they've been on my "to be seen" list for a while. I should just Netflix 'em. Elephant is another nice choice.
