I found both the Cannes films on P2P sites within 3 mins. They are available, just not via the old routes. I'm sure that any minority audience will find them if they wish to.

Aha! Echo chambers again! First blogs, now films; but the principle is the same -- the cultural commissars panicking as their erstwhile stranglehold on news/opinion/taste weakens, and cliques, niches, cults spring up like mushrooms after the rain. (Or something.)

I must say, however, that Amazon rental has encouraged me to experiment with dangerous foreign films as freely and recklessly as the art house cinema or BBC2 ever did.
