Wonderful poetic films, Cocteau is unlike anything else in cinema, dreamlike, beautiful and thought provoking. Excellent prints, great extras. Criterion = 10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Documentary Master, 30 Oct. 2011
Excellent 1970s documentary shorts from Werner Herzog, already showing his mastery of the form.

The Great Ecstasy of Sculptor Steiner is the best of the three. Steiner is a classic Herzogian hero, his trials and tribulations captured in slow motion against a white snow background to the strains of in Popov Vul.

2.0 out of 5 stars beware!, 28 Oct. 2011
Excellent documentary - but I'm very sorry to say that this (2D version) is the worst blu-ray transfer I've ever seen, with ghastly compression block artifacts plaguing every frame. Perhaps the 3D version looks better, but then this will be irrelevent for 99% of the people who buy the disc (myself included). Clearly, they tried to pack far too much onto a single blu-ray.

Hopefully the American release (due November 29th) will have been handled by folks who know what they are doing.
