I've got my hands on a copy of Wajda's "Katyn", in PAL format with English subtitles

Where the subtitles don't even work unless you adjust your DVD player. I'm not going to let this thing go. 20,000 people, Polish officers, officials, intellectuals, were massacred in the Katyn forest by the Soviets under the Hitler-Stalin pact and yet an academy award nominated picture about it by probably the most respected and important post-war Polish film director is unavailable in the United States in a format that U.S. DVD players can play. I'll give a review of it, and be more forthright about the double standard.
