1.) This set digs deeper. There's nothing on the Shout Factory! set that hasn't been around for a while in some form, whereas here you find extravagant rarities like "God's Holy Man."
2.) Still more important, both of the big Blu-Ray review websites identify the BFI transfers as brilliant and the Shout Factory! transfers as sub-par. Here, for example, is bluray.com's review of "Nosferatu" - first the UK, then the US version:
Here is dvdbeaver.com on the same film:
Title after title, a pattern emerges. Although not every film on each box has been reviewed so systematically (the sets are too new), it is clear that the Shout Factory! discs suffer from excessive digital enhancement, while the BGI transfers reflect a greater respect for the source material (see also, reviews of Woyzec and Aguirre on the same sites).Read more ›
Bottom Line, 6 stars for the content and it's quality, 2 stars for the packaging.
Beautifully packaged by BFI it is surely a welcome collectors item, and a bargain to boot!
What does concern me are the following problems, "Heart of Glass" seems to be too dark, and as this isn't a bonus feature why is the films disc only labelled with "Stroszek"?
"Cobra Verde" appears to have badly washed out colour when compared to the old Anchor Bay DVD.
Also of major concern the short film "Werner Herzog eats his shoe" is missing its music, if you have a copy try comparing it to the version available as an extra on Criterions "Burden of dreams" DVD, this new version has total silence in places where music should be playing, these are serious issues BFI.
