The most problematic Panorama disc I bought was Imamura's "Eijanaika" which
did not get along well with one of our DVD players (which had issues of its
own) and has a somewhat iffy transfer. Nonetheless, I was glad the film at
all -- and at a relatively low price.
(some Panorama discs seem to require one to turn subtitles on and off via menu
selections -- and ignore remote-controlled instructions on the topic).
I have heard that some other discs had worse problems.
