Couldn’t see this on the forum so I thought I’d flag up this fabulous UK label that specialises in some fascinating independently minded modern documentaries.
As an early recommendation, I strongly recommend Sound it Out, a splendid documentary on the last vinyl specialist record shop in Teesside, North East England. A moving and quite marvelous look at the staying power of this format and a revealing look at the male psyche.

Some good prices on their back catalogue at AmazonUK.

I've been meaning to explore some of their documentaries for a while, but haven't gotten around to it yet. It's also worth noting that their release of Claudia Llosa's The Milk of Sorrow is also excellent with a superb presentation and comes with a second disc featuring her debut, Madeinusa, which far surpasses the Film Movement release. My only quibble is that it comes in a cardboard case with cut-out slots to slip the DVDs into, which I can't say I'm a big fan of. It's currently £6.59 on Amazon which is IMHO a steal for two great films.

The 100% recyclable cardboard case is a feature of all their recent releases it seems (definitely for Tabloid, Bobby Fischer Vs The World, The Interrupters, Dreams of a Life and The Shock Doctrine, which I have picked up so far).

I wanted to bump this publisher since they have some absolutely terrific documentaries coming soon, especially for those locked into region b/2. Since last posting on the forum, Dogwoof has moved into Blu territory releasing with their first title (Chasing Ice) in a keep case.

As with Second Run, I'm often blind buying Dogwoof titles on day 1 and have never been dissappointed in their release judgment or production values.

PS: Moviemail is currently hosting a sale of their catalogue.

Contrary to the rear cover, "Mistaken For Strangers" is region free, NTSC by the way.

The National: Mistaken For Strangers is getting released in Germany on blu-ray. I don't know if that's going to be much of an improvement considering the quality of cameras they used in making the film.

Can anybody give some details on their Joshua Oppenheimer box? I can't find any information on the set itself, or on their disc of The Look of Silence, even on their website.

The Act of Killing:

  • Theatrical (115 min) and Directors Cut (159 min) versions of the film
  • Directors Cut commentary with Werner Herzog
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Interview with Joshua Oppenheimer
  • VICE Feature
  • The Murder of Gonzago - Errol Morris' essay on the film
    Gallery
  • The Act of Killing Masterclass

The Look of Silence:

  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Directors Q&A with Adi and Louis Theroux
  • Berlinale Q&A footage with Herzog
  • Indonesian Premiere
  • EPK interview featurette
  • Commentary with Errol Morris

An essential set, especially at the current prices I've seen it at. I actually bought both separately, since they're obviously two of the best films of the last decade, and I believe the set is no different - just the two separate releases in one box (probably just a thin card slipbox).

Unless the Act of Killing disc features seamless branching, it will be vastly inferior to the US 2-disc edition.

It's already inferior with the fact that it only has lossy Dolby Digital audio and in a 50hz transfer.
