The Quiet Earth, 1985
This title came up in the Name That Movie thread, so I acquired the German BD release just for grins.

A vast improvement over any previous US release, although it appears to have been transferred from an old DVD master, which in turn was likely taken from an older well-used film source. Full of glitches, but many scenes look quite good. 16:9 AR. A pleasure to watch after having previously only seen it in letterbox 4:3.

The story is impossible to explain, except for the post-apocalyptic world which may or may not be reality, alternate universe or whatever.

Edit to add: This release is advertised and labeled as Region-B, but it is region free.
