Room for Improvement
on 16 September 2009
Having eagerly anticipated this film set's arrival, I was left more than a little disappointed when I discovered how bad the packaging was. Although this is not detrimental to my viewing pleasure, I was rather miffed after having spent 75 quid or so, to find that the box was a flimsy cardboard construction that pretty much fell apart when opened.
That said, the films did arrive on time and in good condition themselves.
I haven't had the chance to watch all of them yet, but I was disappointed with the Innocents - described as the best ghost film ever! - and I feel that there are other noteworthy films from European Cinema's history that should have been included, such as those from Antonioni or Goddard. However, as I said, I have not watched them all and am particularly eager to see Luis Bunel's Tristana!
Overall, it is not a bad investment, but is quite pricey.
