Fritz Lang: The Silent Films — 12 Disc Set 11/21/17

Kino Classics

“The Complete Silent Films of German Cinema’s Supreme Stylist.” Kino Lorber shows its faith in the Blu-ray medium with an extravagant collection of its entire silent holdings of the Fritz Lang library of silent classics. Mythical heroes, sacrificing heroines, criminal madmen and uncontrolled super-science are his themes; it’s a paranoid’s view of the first half of the 20th Century, expressed in fantastic creative innovations that literally re-write the rules of cinema. Metropolis, Die Niebelungen, Mabuse, Spies, Destiny — they’re all here in handsomely appointed packaging. On Blu-ray from Kino Classics.
