    Volume 1 includes: "The Fall of the House of Usher," "A Game with Stones," "Et cetera," "Punch and July," "The Flat," "Picnic with Weissmann," "A Quiet Week in the House."

    Volume 2 includes: "Dimensions of Dialogue," "Down to the Cellar," "The Pendlum, the Pit and Hope," "Meat Love," "Flora," "The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia," "Food."

    Bit pricey though.

    Thanks for that info! I was wondering about the possible overlap with the shorts included on a couple of feature dvd's. It looks like "Food" is the only redundancy and I'm certain there are a number I haven't seen before ever. A definite buy for me! [​IMG]

    Sounds cool. I discovered Swankmajer with Faust. Any word on that or Alice being released? Or have they been already?

    Still a fair number of shorts remain unreleased. And with "Meat Love" and "Flora" being very short shorts ("Flora" is just 20 seconds; don't recall how long "Meat Love" is), it seems that the $30 tag is somewhat unjustified, at least per the number of shorts contained. Oh well, better than nothing.

    Another collection of Svankmajer shorts was just released. For those that missed it:

    THis, in addition to the previous two-disc release by Kino, covers almost all shorts. If i'm not mistaken, only two remain in limbo, for whatever reason, and it's unfortunate they couldn't have been added.

    Yes! I've been waiting for this. I was hoping that Jabberwocky would be included (the sequence with the puzzle blocks and the cat jumping through is one of my favorites from any of his films).
