Lubitch in Berlin is going oop again according to Facebook.

(I think) Make Way for Tomorrow is oop, so a Criterion addition could be coming to the UK soon.

Looks like the Blu-ray for Douglas Sirk's "A Time to Love and a Time to Die" is currently unavailable at the Eureka store, and is only available at Amazon UK through third-party sellers. Zavvi still has it for £11.49, though.

They're gradually updating all their non-dual formats to dual formats the past few months (like the Murderer lives at 21 and Kuroneko) I assume A Time to Love and a Time to Die and Bakumatsu Tayo-den are doing the same.

The Passion of the Joan or Arc Steelbook is oop. Cleopatra Dual Format and La tete contre le murs DVD may be going oop (hard to tell atm).

It wouldn't surprise me if Cleopatra goes. If you type "Cleopatra" in DVDs and Blu-rays on Amazon, you have to go down a long, long way to get to the MoC edition.

Does anyone know if A Time to Love and a Time to Die will be available again anytime soon? I'm going through a shamefully late Sirk phase and it's frustrating not being able to find this for a reasonable price. Not sure how long it's taken them to update to dual formats for similar releases in the past, though.

Wasn't the film released in individual Blu-ray and DVD released as well? Now none of the editions seems to be available anywhere online.

Holey smokes. All versions showing as unavailable on the Eureka website as well. I guess they may repackage them without the book or... they've lost the rights to Criterion... Gulp...

Yes, and apparently some people panicked and tried to order from the Eureka site so they had to pull the listing. They're recalling stock from retailers and will try and fulfil as many orders as possible but some may go empty-handed.

I know it has been out for quite a while but it would've been nice to have a stock warning for something like this. I have all the Imamura titles separately so didn't necessarily need a copy, but I understand some people may have just been sleeping on it and needed a nudge.

Oh well, they may still be able to find copies in store or from third party sellers. Some of the separate releases have sold for reasonable prices too I've noticed, so you could always try and get them that way as well.

Hoping Eureka acquire at least one or two more Imamura titles soon - The Pornographers and Intentions of Murder were both released in France quite recently, so I assume those two would have decent enough transfers to get their own MoC editions.

Eureka gave a nudge years ago when they released this set. The fact that it has been available for as long as it has been is the real surprise.

Yeah, I remember Kevin estimating it would sell out soon. He must have said that about a year ago!

I guess with some of these sets, there's a flurry of sales when they're released and the last 200-300 are picked up gradually. Seems to be the same for some of Arrow Academy's recent box sets (e.g. Yoshida).

i'd like to find out too.
i regret not having bought this!
i didn't know at the time that these are limited. (and people are only all over TT who at least tells you how many copies are released)

What has happened to Kubrick's Fear and Desire. I cannot find an affordable copy anywhere.

Does anyone have an information on this title? Is it OOP?

<100 copies of their super-duper 90th Anniversary Metropolis edition left - and this is one that will be gone as it was a Eureka store exclusive.

It was OOP for a while but reappeared for a few quid in Fopp recently (and a few other sellers). Annoyingly the same happened to Renoir's Toni but I missed out 'cause I hesitated.

The Holy Mountain might actually get an upgrade via MoC though since Kino Lorber are releasing it in the US and Eureka sometimes license from them.
