Good grief, everyone please buy the Makhmalbaf set for 80% off, even if only to support Arrow releasing more of his films (also Love of a Woman at the same $9.99 price point, as a vote for more Grémillon)

Thanks for the tip! I got Love of a Woman at a previous Arrow sale based on your rec, and I just picked this up as well. I never heard of either before your posts, so you're 2 for 2.

I should add the shipping for one title is pretty high - $6.50 or $6.95 - but it was only a few dollars more with the Makhmalbaf set.

Nice, make sure to see A Moment of Innocence as well as perhaps Salaam Cinema or The Cyclist for a fuller picture of this great filmmaker

I hope it is just a bug or user error rather than only a couple of each title being made available. I’ll be waiting for them to come back.

I've asked Second Run and they've contacted Arrow to ask why this happened, as they should have plenty of stock in their warehouse. Slightly frustrating as there are at least 4 titles from the Second Run catalogue I want to get in this sale, but they're all out of stock. I would place an order for the Arrow titles I'm after, but there's no option to merge orders and the postage difference is huge for separate orders.

Have the same issue here. Also Horse Money was listed as having limited stock but now it's unavailable too. Hopefully they can restock the Second Run titles, shipping for the first four titles is a flat eight pounds so it's not much of a sale if only one title you want is actually "in stock."

Some of the second run blu-rays that were previously showing up as out of stock are now showing up with limited availability. I don't know how much of each they have, but I just picked up 5.

Thanks for the tip! I ordered a few and checked afterward and saw that some were already unavailable again. Also picked up Vitalina Varela because it added nothing to my shipping cost and if I count the savings from not paying $12 to rent the VOD from Grasshopper, it's sort of half-off as well?

The rest of the Second Run blus (Rookie Hangman, The Ear, Valerie, etc.) are now in stock.

I love this thread. Thanks for the tip everyone. FYI the Second Run BD's of A Blonde in Love, Horse Money and Diamonds of the Night (which has an exclusive Michael Brooke commentary) are all solidly in stock after being out of stock before.

No worries, after my enquiries they managed to get Arrow to sort it today roughly around lunchtime, so I ordered Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, Case of a Rookie Hangman, Intimate Lighting and The Cremator. I now have most of the Second Run BD library - just a few missing that haven't been on offer, I didn't get near release, or am just a bit more cautious about getting.

Might dip back in for some DVD titles, but worried some might get BD upgrades in the next few years. Any that definitely won't? I'm especially interested in Kinetta and Liverpool, but also Traps, Stella Cadente, One. Two. One., Szindbád, and Blood.

Bought 7 films from the Easter sale. Shipping to Sweden was £8.50. I found what seems like a nice double of films that I haven't seen. Dawson City: Frozen Time (Bill Morrson) and The Far Country (Anthony Mann). Mann's film being set in Dawson during the gold rush.
