Hidden (fool's?) gold

When I was young and single, I used to buy DVDs all the time. "Only $18.99 each, I can hardly afford not to!" But my heavy DVD-watching days are behind me, so I was going through my collection and looking for stuff to sell online somehow, maybe on Amazon.

"Trois Couleurs used for $20, not bad...I, Claudius is going for $40, sweet...The Dekalog almost $50! Baraka....what the hell?"

Yes, apparently the DVD edition of Baraka I bought years ago is listing used on Amazon for $399.99. Do people really buy it at that price? Cause I'd gladly take $398.99 for mine.

Wow, and there are others listed for even more than that. Baraka is actually one of my favorite movies. I think I have watched it 4 times in the last year.
I like it too, but this isn't even a particularly good edition...it's non-anamorphic letterboxed. I have no idea why the prices are so high.
Reminds me that the cheapest used copy of Paul Graham's On Lisp was $345. Thankfully, my school's got a good sci-tech library.
