Ao Cair da Noite (1948), noir de Frank Borzage, nunca saiu por aqui. Fica a dica pra Versátil lançar na coleção Filme Noir. Não confundir com o filme homônimo, de 1958, com a Brigitte Bardot, também um thriller, este sim lançado aqui pela Classicline.

O Outro Lado da Esperança (2017), filme do finlandês Aki Kaurismäki que aborda a questão dos refugiados saiu aqui em DVD pela Imovision.

Além das Montanhas (2012) e Graduation (2016), ambos do romeno Christian Mungiu nunca saíram por aqui.

Mishima: Uma Vida em Quatro Tempos (1985), do Paul Schrader (mais conhecido por ser o roteirista de Taxi Driver) saiu recentemente numa bela edição em DVD pela Obras Primas, com versão remasterizada e vários extras.

Perdidos na Noite (1969), de John Schlesinger,  conta com Dustin Hoffman e Jon Voight, ambos praticamente estreando no cinema. Engraçado ver como o conservador Voight (também famoso por ser o pai de Angelina Jolie) fez um filme tão “liberal” quanto Perdidos. Saiu por aqui em uma rara edição da Fox na coleção Cinema Reserve, com 2 DVDs e depois numa versão simples pela Classicline. Atualmente está fora de catálogo.

O clássico A Grande Testemunha (1966), de Robert Bresson, tinha saído aqui pela Silver Screen em uma edição qualquer nota mas foi resgatado recentemente pela Versátil em uma versão restaurada no box A Arte de Robert Bresson.
