That was me, based on all the information I've received so far. AFAIK the Szulkin titles are those three, but I imagine they might try and get Golem for a separate release (unless another label got it).

What's wishful thinking about it? The only one I'm not 100% on is I Am Waiting, but I'd be very surprised if it's a different 1950s Kurahara title. I purposely haven't made a separate listing for the film yet though, just in case it changes when they actually announce the set formally.

Can the UK releases be imported to the US? I’m interested in the Szulkin boxset.

Yes, Radiance sells them direct, DiabolikDVD will carry them, same with OrbitDVD & GrindhouseVideo. Lots of places sell UK discs to the US.

I also think the Kurahara entry will be I Am Waiting, but just for fun, I looked through the rest of his 50s filmography.

After I Am Waiting, his directorial debut, Kurahara made 8 films in the following 2 years, all at Nikkatsu:

- A Man in the Fog (霧の中の男, 1958)
- A Man Who Rode the Typhoon (風速40米, 1958)
- Run Through the Storm (嵐の中を突っ走れ, 1958)
- The Third Dead Angle (第三の死角, 1959)
- Light the Explosives (爆薬に火をつけろ, 1959)
- The Woman from the Sea (海底から来た女, 1959)
- A Turning to Hell (地獄の曲り角, 1959)
- The Age of Our Own (われらの時代, 1959)

While I haven't seen any of them, those 3 bold ones sound noir enough, based on their synopses.

I didn't mean my question as rude or such, I was just absolutely unaware of the reasons why

Just seen over on twitter that Vinegar Syndrome are dropping a 4 disc set at 5:01am tomorrow (UK time) and people seem to think it’s Szulkin’s Apocalypse Quadrilogy. Would make sense that Radiance teased theirs before that drops.
Someone has also said that Michael Brooke has said (not sure where he’s posting these days) that Golem is with a different distributor in the UK but should be coming some time this year.

I reckon Golem could either be with Eureka, given their recent interest in Polish cinema, or Second Run (who obviously delivered a Wajda set last year). I canít imagine Arrow would go for just the one random title, but I suppose BFI mightíve, though unlike Skomilowski Iím not aware of an upcoming Szulkin season for that to be the case.

Either way, Iím buying the Radiance set for sure and probably Golem as well!

I'll be curious about the supplements on each of the releases. Vinegar Syndrome has:

-Brand new commentary track with film historian and author Samm Deighan for GOLEM (won't be on Radiance's of course)
-Brand new commentary track with film author and critic Michael Brooke for THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: NEXT CENTURY
-"Actually Existing Dystopia: Politics, Delusion and Language in O-BI, O-BA: THE END OF CIVILIZATION" (17 min) - a video essay by Jonathan Owen
-"Hard to be a Hero: Piotr Szulkin’s GA-GA: GLORY TO THE HEROES" (21 min) - a video essay by Andrew Nette
-40-page perfect bound book with essays by Samm Deighan and Patrick Dahl alongside an archival interview with director Piotr Szulkin

Im assuming the radiance release will be the better release since i dont think they would try to squeeze three movies on two discs based on the looks of their previous box sets

Also i assume each case will have reversible artwork as well.

Finally based on other boxsets i assume its going to be harder outer box with three cases

I'm assuming Radiance will have more extras and their booklet will be chunkier. They certainly have more time to work on the extras for theirs.

I also think VS will be okay with sales no matter what they do, whereas I want to support Radiance and make sure all their stuff sells enough so they can keep doing what they're doing.

So I'll probably be getting the Radiance of this one.

The Uk release will have 1 less movie. It will be a trilogy not a tetralogy.

The spine says 30-31-32 so I assume so.

Michael Brooke said over on the Criterion forum that he's not involved in the Radiance one. Apparently Fran's intending to foreground local experts where possible so expect a heavy Polish presence rather than Kim Newman sitting in front of his bookshelf again.

This is definitely appreciated. And Newman is always decent value but I'm happy to see Fran sticking more Italian experts on the Italian releases, Polish on the Polish ones, French on the French, Japanese etc etc etc. The regional folk have interesting things to say, and it makes a change from 90% of my discs mainly having contributions from Kim Newman, Stephen Thrower, Kat Ellinger, and Tim Lucas.

Fran should stick Imogen Sara Smith on a couple of disc releases, she does great stuff for Criterion.

I find once there's a region B release it can be tough to shift the Region A version for a decent price if you want to later so I'm happy to wait for the Radiance release. Hopefully whoever is releasing Golem will be coordinating the dates but if not it's a thematic set of films not direct sequels so there's no worries watching Golem later.

Vinegar Syndrome have a trailer up, looks like wonderful stuff.

That's really unfortunate, his audio commentaries on Eastern European film are some of the best going.

Torn on this one since I have the Radiance set coming with the sub... Golem?!?

But can they match him for jackets and neckties?

I’m so used to padded out booklets that immediately necessitate a hardbox, artcards, posters and costing twice the price, or drowned out with photos and one short essay on poor quality paper, the booklet to The Working Class Goes to Heaven feels like a throwback to some of the best Eureka booklets (35 pages of text in a 56 page booklet), with new translations, integrated with stills and posters and footnotes in a way that feels organic, supporting the body of the essay, two new essays from Italian writers, a Cahiers du cinťma reprint, Petri interview, Film Quarterly review.

I really like the decision to include the title sequence in the booklet, 26/48 text pages in Dollhouse, with director’s notes, two new essays, UI Press reprint and critical overview.
