An excellent collection that includes three key films from the 1960's from the long and influential career Miklós Jancsó, the often overlooked, Hungarian filmmaker. The collection also includes a lengthy interview with the director and two of his many documentaries, plus the reprint of an important appreciation of Jancsó's work by former "Sight & Sound" editor, Penelope Houston, published in 1969.

My one reservation, however, is the transfer of THE RED AND THE WHITE [Csillagosok, katonák] which is noticeably soft throughout. The U.S. release on Kino is sharper, but with a different translation and subtitles that are a tad too large.

That noted, this is a valuable addition to any collection, not likely to be replaced or surpassed, on DVD or Blu-ray, anytime soon.

These three films from legendary Hungarian filmmaker Miklos Jancso are amazing, poignant, beautiful and emotionally shattering tales of war, loss, humanity and corruption.
THE ROUND-UP itself is worth it at this price, but with the addition of THE RED AND THE WHITE and MY WAY HOME this is an absolute bargain!
