I try not to get into too much detail but my health took a bit of a nosedive in early Autumn. One of the unfortunate side effects of this was falling behind on my unboxings. I have a nice little stack to share, so let’s get going! We’re starting with Kino Lorber.

As a devotee of 1910s crime cinema, I have been coveting Filibus enormously! It’s an Italian crime picture with airships and robberies and a female villain, what else could we wish for? Well, a score by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra helps, too.
This just covers the home media release but I am planning to review this film very soon, so watch this space!
The Indian Tomb
If you know anything about me, you know that I love The Indian Tomb. It’s long, it’s slow, it’s gorgeous and it has Conrad Veidt. It hits all my Weimar happy places. I was delighted to see that a new restoration was released in Germany, which included footage not found in the previous DVD. Well, it has come to North America! Not a huge fan of the ambient score– it’s a bit much for 3+ hours– but the restoration makes me swoon.
And a bonus talkie…
If you want to see a talking Erich von Stroheim, The Great Gabbo is also available.
Thanks so much for your patience. More coverage of new releases from the second half of 2021-to-present coming soon!
