Looks like a winner. I love Criterion, but I know that they have the problem of getting films to work with. If there can be another studio putting out the quality and depth that Criterion does, I'm all for it. You can't have too many great films released.
My fingers are crossed.
They're using Metropolis as part of their logo... I wonder how they will handle its eventual release, especially with the restored version coming out this year.
Additionally, they use a photo of Buster Keaton, and advertise Das Boot as an upcoming release. Interesting array of possibilities.
The price of $39.95 for The Blue Angel seems steep, even for a special edition, but I don't know enough about their plans to see if the price is warranted.
I registered to be on their mailing list. Hope this series works out.
Color me stupid, but where on that site is the list of films they are bringing out?
Yeah, I couldn't find it either.
There isn't one yet - unless I completely missed it.
The only title I've seen announced is Blue Angel (which you have to send your email in to be told when it's available). Das Boot is mentioned as well, but no date is given.
The auto response I got after registering read as follows...
It almost seems to me that they may produce titles for studios/labels that have the rights. RE: Das Boot"
That's because Kino is distributing the Movie Treasury DVD releases.
To get that email newsletter, do you just signup for the "Free membership"?

Just signed up out of curiosity
I must say that if they did produce Kino's BLUE ANGEL, they did a heck of a job. It looks pretty good for a film of that age, although there was some heavy digital restoration done on both prints. Makes the film look a tad "unreal". Kind of like SNOW WHITE.
