I looked at the essay posted in this thread, and some comments on the film's own dedicated thread and decided to go for it. The extras and image quality seem almost identical for the Cohen and Arrow (slightly higher bitrate for the Arrow), but even though I'm in North America I went with Arrow because it came out cheaper.

Based on the unseen films mentioned, what I haven't rewatched recently among those I consider keepers, and on exclusions due to having rewatched them very recently (Dr. Mabuse the Gambler, Die Nibelungen, M, Testament of Dr. Mabuse, Fury), this is what I've got set up to watch this summer for the project:

Metropolis
Spies
You Only Live Once
(coming out on BR July 11)
You and Me
Western Union
Man Hunt
Hangmen Also Die!
Ministry of Fear
The Woman in the Window
Scarlet Street
House by the River
American Guerrilla in the Philippines
The Blue Gardenia
The Big Heat
Human Desire
Moonfleet
While the City Sleeps
Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

When are we doing the list project? I've never truly participated, but given the size of my Lang collection there's no reason for me not to here.

I just ordered the recent blu rays of Destiny and Man Hunt yesterday. Going to pick up You Only Live Once as soon as it's released. Also will make sure to get the Olive Cloak and Daggar and Kino version of Western Union. The Return of Frank James is available to rent on Amazon, and considering the quality of the blu based on screencaps that'll be enough for me.

What's the best way to see You and Me? Is the Koch DVD available anywhere?

It starts July 2nd. I will post the link to the List Project thread in this thread when it starts, discussion will not be held in this thread-- Rayon Vert is just getting ahead of himself. You and Me is in Universal's second Dark Crimes set from TCM and the larger retail set

EDIT Sorry, looks like You and Me is not in the 10 film Universal Noir box, only the TCM set or solo as the DVD-R Rayon Vert linked to below

You and Me is now available on its own as a TCM DVD - that's the one I purchased.

Indeed. I'm just making sure I've got the films for the starting date!

The Fritz Lang Auteur List is now running through September 4th. If you lurk on the board, you will need to log in to see the thread. Anyone reading this may submit a list without posting/participating publicly, but c'mon, go post your thoughts in that thread!

Reminder that the Fritz Lang Auteur List ends one week from today (September 4th)! Even if you haven't participated, you can submit a list-- but there's still a week left, come say something about Fritz Lang!
