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.
