It's been released on Blu-Ray and DVD in the US by Olive Films. Amazon shows it in stock, and there are a couple of listings for it on Ebay. It doesn't seem to be available streaming anywhere even for digital purchase or rental--JustWatch doesn't even show a listing for it.

Seeking the 1983 movie Reuben, Reuben with Tom Conti. Any leads? :)

I seem to remember it was posted in parts on YouTube at some point. The quality was about VHS-level, and I don't know if it's still available there. I did a search on Blu-Ray.com and it indeed appears that it has never been released on DVD, and it doesn't appear to be available to rent or purchase on any of the major streaming vendors like Amazon or Vudu. 20th Century Fox distributed it in the US, so I'm not sure why it's so hard to watch, unless they lost the rights and it's held up due to those issues.


I found it on Youtube! Thank you!

Does anyone know if the Dutch movie Instinct from last year (with Carice van Houten) will release or has an expected streaming/blu-ray date in the Netherlands/US. I missed it at the Chicago film festival and I haven't heard anything about it since.

I did manage to purchase a copy (having seen it previously on the big screen) from a Romanian retailer but that was back when it was first released. A crying shame that this film has not been picked for distribution in the US or UK.

This link has more information about the Blu Ray release. Maybe you could email them - it may have been re-released on DVD or something.

It has been released on DVD in a couple of countries in Europe (France, Italy, Spain) but none have English subtitles.



Thank you!

I picked up a copy of eBay some time ago, so that is another option.

Not sure if the Blu Ray is Region locked but if you want me to check to drop a line on this post. The Blu Ray has optional English subtitles.

Most tragic that this film remains unreleased in any English speaking countries. I was lucky enough to see it first on the big screen and is was a spectacular viewing experience. The sound design is outstanding.



I really loved it. Was remarkably close to the novel. Shame it hasn't found a US release!
