Well I missed the boat on this one. If I were crazy or rich enough I wouldn't mind forking over $100 bucks for any one of his DVD releases. Does anyone know if there are any bootlegs, cheaper non-region 1's or plans to release his films in the near future? Any news is news..
I'm particularly intirested in MON ONCLE and LES VACANCES DE M. HULOT (MR. HULOT'S HOLIDAY).

The only Tati film I've seen is Playtime, which is a very funny French comedy.

I've complete confidence that HULOT, MON ONCLE, and PLAYTIME will be rereleased by the Tati estate within the next few years. No doubt about it.
In the meantime, look out for legit videos of them on eBay. I know that Embassy brought out HULOT a few times in the 80s-90s, and I think PLAYTIME too. I remember MON ONCLE coming out via Video Yesteryear in the latter 80s, marketed through Walden's Books at the then astounding bargain price of $19.95. [I think it was a shorter, U.S. cut though.] Or I'm sure you'll find someone willing to dub you copies from the Criterion discs.

I've also seen Mr. Hulot's Holiday, Jour De Fete, and Mon Oncle and liked them in that order.
