R1 is progressive
R2UK is interlaced NTSC

NOTE: The R1 only comes as part of Criterion's Eclipse Series Postwar Kurosawa boxset.

Video:
I don't know what happened here, MoC really dropped the ball. R1 is miles better.

Audio:
R1 has clearer audio.

Subs:
Like "I Live in Fear" the R1 subtitles everything and often the subs are near dientical but I much prefer the R2UK ones when they do differ.

Extras:
R2UK has an introduction, R1 has none.

Overall:
R1 - £30 buys you five good films and all with good transfers.
