 I caught Naruse's fantastic "Scattered Clouds/Two in the Shadow"
 on a Mei Ah VCD, hard to find in the US by any other means.
 The Chinese-only subtitles were helpfully *not* part of 
 the letterboxed image. Most of the "Classics"
 released by Mei Ah don't have English subtitles,
 as though they don't quite have the same
 appeal as contemporary films in global markets.
