What a magnificent release. That's just about everything, is it not?

It's missing a handful of films from this official filmography (Lifters, Little Villain, Everyday Thieves, The Man Who Couldn't Stop Lying, The Curious World of Frinton-on-Sea, The Men Who Sleep in Trucks) though to be fair it also includes several films that filmography is missing!

Also, here's the artwork:

I wonder if Invention for Destruction is still forthcoming the following week. Will they really put out these two, Daisies and Diamonds of the Night before year's end? That's almost half of their supposed 2018 slate in four months, and nine titles in the year total.

"A British documentary maestro who's been building a remarkable body of humanist work since 2001, Marc Isaacs remains largely unknown outside the UK except to those devoted enough to import the handful of home video releases of his work. Second Run has been banging the drum for his output... they've really outdone themselves by consolidating everything into a 2018 two-disc Blu-ray set that also adds quite a bit more, serving as a substantial upgrade all around and providing the best overview yet to a filmmaker well worth discovering."

I suspected most of the films would be sourced from standard def materials, but even those look better than their previous DVD incarnations to my eyes. The source material is hardly a fair blemish against what looks like Second Run's most comprehensive release to date - and the sturdy packaging (similar to a lot of Arrow's limited edition cases) is the icing on the cake. I hope you guys have plans for the future which could match or top this release.
