Is it common for blu-rays from Hong Kong to cost $135?

YIM Ho's Red Dust (1990) starring Brigitte Lin, Maggie Cheung and Han Chin is getting a digitally remastered blu-ray in Taiwan. Also coming next month is a 25th Anniversary Edition of Farewell, My Concubine.

Thanks, I will definitely pick Red Dust up.

Also, CN Entertainment's English-friendly BD of Ann Hui's The Story of Woo Viet drops today. I'll be interested to see how the PQ compares to that of the French disc.

Surface mail -- the cheapest mailing option from China -- usually takes 10-12 weeks to the US East Coast and 8-10 weeks to the West Coast. And if they delayed shipping things out for whatever reason -- out of stock or whatnot -- it obviously could take longer. 6 months is a little absurd though.
China surface mail is roughly 1/4 the price of airmail, with SAL (Sea-Air-Land) a 3 week delivery option priced in between the two.

The USPS stopped offering surface mail over a decade ago (canceled circa 2007, I think).
