3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent films, but technically flawed, 15 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Herzog / Kinski Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I was recommended this in HMV without having even heard of Herzog and Kinski (I've only been exploring foreign cinema for a year now), and I bought it on the spot, and as far as the films are concerned I have not been disappointed. Herzog seems to be a master of directing cinematic beauty, and these five films show it. Personally, I think Aguirre is the best film of the box. And kinski is without doubt one of the most fascinating actors that i've ever come across.
The packaging is fantastic (Anchor Bay are usually good at this), but the films are let down by its subtitling. Sometimes the actors are speaking and there is nothing on the screen to indicate what they are talking about, with the only alternative being to switch to English audio. Fitzcaraldo is by far the worst film for this, where at times a good twenty seconds of dialougue can be missed.
If you can put up with theEnglish audio track, and you're a fan of these movies, then this boxset is for you.
