FAUST rises again

Apologies for my bloglessness, but I've been making up for lost time on several Kino projects.

Just to show that I and my blog are still alive, I'm posting links to reviews of the new edition of F.W. Murnau's FAUST that I produced, which was released along with a box set of Murnau silents.



Next time I blog, I promise... insights, wit, etc. But for now.... shameless self-promotion.

If you're into German silents at all, you owe it to yourself to check out the new FAUST, because the image quality is a huge improvement over what was previously released. And if you get the double-disc set, there is a phenomenal documentary on the making of the film that does multi-screen comparisons of the various takes from the film. Through this, one can track Murnau's creative process, see him experiment and change his mind, and gain profound understanding of the freedom he was allowed while making this film at Ufa. There's honestly nothing else of its kind out there. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Maybe I already posted it, but here's the trailer I cut for the release:

Hey Bret,

This looks great !
I remeber in film class at ACA one day to you told
us that the movie we were about to see students still
emailed you years later begging for the title.
Well I guess that time has come for me !
This was black and white movie think set in the 30's or 40's (New York) with a young girl is dealing with a step father she can't trust. But meets a sailor randomly on the street and they hit it off.
She says a sad good bye in the subway station but, it doesn't turn out to be their last.
Can you tell me name of this film?

Hope all is well.

lyndsy !

Bret,

What's the status of the Kino blu-ray of The Sacrifice? I've been eagerly awaiting it since you mentioned it here last year..

 
At 2:48 PM, Blogger BWood said...

Sorry, I've neglected this blog for months but am finally dusting it off and recharging it. If anyone's still listening....

Lyndsy... the film you're thinking of is Rouben Mamoulian's APPLAUSE (1929).

Picasso... We had to postpone THE SACRIFICE until we could find a reliable way of removing dust/dirt particles from an HD master (they were printed into the film element from which we made the transfer). I'm happy to report, we've found a system that does this without compromising the detail or motion in the image, and THE SACRIFICE is back on the release schedule for late Spring 2011.
