Notes: 
The recent champion of the annual Czech Lion Awards, "Burning Bush" was released on Blu-ray last year (in December) already; the BD is not getting any awards from me though - 1080i50 and lossy audio may well be what HBO viewers originally got, but I assume that a 24 fps** master or at least one with lossless soundtrack could have been created for this release... (**I'm not sure this was actually shot on film, but a re-cut feature-length version did get a theatrical run.)
     I'm not saying the Blu looks or sounds bad, quite the opposite, but progressive encoding / lossless audio should be the standard in this day and age...
