    Buy "my life as a dog" Ian. Best swedish film ever made. I might even buy it myself, as the swedish DVD is pretty crappy. Is the BD region free or will criterion assfuck me out of this simple request?

    I have no idea but if it's region locked, blame the rights holder, not the releasing company, as it's almost always done out of contractual obligation.

    I thought you were the expert. I demand you find out for me. You have 24 hours and counting to do so.

    Well it is Swedish, and it is very good. So there. Case closed. Buy it.
