Exclamation Werner Herzog Collection (Shout! Factory) - July 29, 2014




Herzog: The Collection Blu-ray


Quote:
He has taken his camera to parts of the world no other director would dare go, and told stories in ways no one had ever considered. These sixteen masterpieces, which blur the line between "fiction" and "documentary," illustrate why Werner Herzog is the most daring, visionary and dangerous filmmaker of our lifetime -- the director that both Milos Forman and Francois Truffaut have called "the greatest filmmaker alive today."



This deluxe set includes, for the first time on Blu-Ray:


EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL

NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE

LAND OF SILENCE AND DARKNESS

FITZCARRALDO

FATA MORGANA

BALLAD OF LITTLE SOLDIER

AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD

WHERE THE GREEN ANTS DREAM

THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER

COBRA VERDE

HEART OF GLASS

LESSONS OF DARKNESS

STROSZEK

LITTLE DIETER NEEDS TO FLY

WOYZECK

MY BEST FRIEND

We are honored with this opportunity to bring these iconic films to movie collectors and legions of fans on digital entertainment platforms and at retail,” stated Shout!

Nosferatu is one of the greatest horror remakes in cinema history. I would not mind having that on Blu-ray.

Holy cow, that's amazing. The BFI is scheduled to do at least some of those for Region B, so I'm going to wait and see who comes up with what before making my purchases. I love most of the films in the Herzog-Kinski DVD boxset, so I'll be looking to pick some of those up.

Great news. I've only seen a few of these, but they were solid. Shout has been on an insane tear this year.

This is great news indeed. I wonder why Criterion passed on making this deal. I hope Shout has the resources available to present these films with the care they deserve... as well as with quality supplements.

Cool news. His version of Nosferatu is my favorite Dracula film. Hopefully its release is better than the German BD which looks a bit too digital. http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Nosfer.../47529/#Review

What are the odds Anchor Bay's extras are retained? Can I sell my DVD set?

I should clarify: I know there are no further details, but maybe there's some history of Anchor Bay extras never making it to new editions when titles switch distributors. Then again, I guess since I know the Blue Underground Argentos have everything from the AB editions, I know that isn't the case, so...
