Masters Of Cinema Bringing FAUST and THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI To Blu-ray!
Great news for fans of German Expressionism - and let's face it, who isn't? Eureka Entertainment has announced that it will be releasing two of the most important films from this hugely influential movement in world cinema to Blu-ray and DVD on their Masters of Cinema label. F.W. Murnau's Faust and Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, perhaps two of the greatest silent horror films ever made, will both be made available on Blu-ray and DVD via the award-winning label later this summer.
Caligari, which premiered in a glorious newly restored print at this year's Berlinale, will also be released in selected cinemas across the UK and Eire, and while the final dates have yet to be announced, Faust will be arriving in a dual format release on 18 August, featuring a raft of mouth-watering special features and a new 1080p high definition restoration. Supplements include an audio commentary by David Ehrenstein and Bill Krohn, a 40-page booklet packed with new and archival writing about the film, and a 20-minute video essay from film critic Tony Rayns - an extract of which you can check out below!
