Sam Neill Online - DVDs

The DVDs listed below are mostly Region 1 (US, Canada), but there are a few from other Regions/Countries mixed in as well. I am always on the lookout for new releases and better versions, so consider this list a Work-in-Progress. This is not in any way a compehensive list of what is available worldwide and it doesn't cover Blu-ray releases.

I have tried to be as accurate as possible, but if I got something wrong, I apologize in advance.


For those of you in the United States, here are a few tips on buying DVDs worldwide.

  • If it says Region ALL or 0 and it's NTSC, then it should play on your Region 1 dvd player.
  • If it says Region ALL or 0 and it's PAL, it probably WON'T play on your Region 1 DVD player.
  • If it says Region 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, then it will NOT play on your Region 1 dvd player.
  • If you purchase a Region Free/All Region/Multi-Region DVD Player, then you should be able to play any Region's dvds (ie - everything listed below), whether they are PAL or NTSC.

One thing to keep in mind with regard to comparing film lengths in DVD versions, is that movies on PAL DVDs play back faster than their NTSC counterparts, so even if the NTSC version is listed as slightly longer than it's PAL counterpart, it's still the same version. Here is an article about this: PAL's 4% Speedup

This film is available on Region 1 DVD, but the 1999 release has a very grainy picture quality and it's not Anamorphic. There is also a 2012 release, but I haven't seen it yet. Maybe it has better picture quality or is Anamorphic. Neither of the US releases have the Extras that the UK release does.

This film is available on Region 1 dvd (Canadian), but at least one reviewer stated on Amazon that the video quality is poor and it doesn't appear to include any Extras.

These films are available in Australia individually or as part of the Box Set. I would highly suggest buying the Box Set for the Extras Disc, as it includes an interview with Sam Neill about directing The Brush Off.
