It's the smaller DVD labels that allow us to still see, and appreciate, various films, classic or not-so classic, that might otherwise be unavailable. And the people who run these labels are mostly just getting by, just like the rest of us. I received an email from Valentina Sutto of Shameless indicating her optimism following the loss of stock. There's more about the DVD labels that have been hit in this post from V Cinema.
Insurance doesn't quite cover everything. So if you ever wanted a reason to do a little shopping at Amazon.UK (not an affiliate of this site, by the way), here's a good excuse to help out the people who share their real love of cinema with the rest of us.
