Hopefully they meant 'latest' and not final?


It also depends on what they mean by 'major works' and 'restored'... Whatever the situation, I don't think anyone can say this is the last time anyone's going to work on his catalogue, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Oh, definitely. There's still the longer cut of Querelle, for one, plus the English/Deutsch versions of Lili Marleen

They don't mention that they're from new restorations but, in the BFI's ongoing Fassbinder retrospective, the only films listed as being screened from 'Digital 4K' (as opposed to just 'Digital' or 35mm) are In a Year of 13 Moons, Lola, The Third Generation and Germany in Autumn. I think it remember being said that the Arrow boxset released last March collected all of the restorations up until that point, which would mean that they must have all been restored since then?

I would like to point out a quirk of the Amazon.de website.
If you choose the option of translating the page in English, it shows the audio language for this set as English. Being almost certain this is incorrect, I changed the option to see the page in the original language (German), and then it showed the audio language correctly as Deutsch.
I have observed this problem with Amazon.it and Amazon.fr as well (for both audio and subtitle languages).
So if you want to order any item based on the translated page, it may be wise to verify the audio/subtitle language by viewing the information in the original site language.

What could be the content of the set? BRD trilogy is unlikely since Arrow has released Maria Braun already. And is Arrow not going to release another set that collects the newest batch of restored Fassbinder films?

The older AE DVD sets contain (Vol I) Lola, Martha, Why Does Herr R. Run Amok? and (Vol II) Veronika Voss, In a Year of Thirteen Moons, The Third Generation, and Germany in Autumn so I'd imagine it's some combination therein.

The Shanghai Film Festival has a mini-spotlight on Fassbinder and Melville, showing 5 films from both directors.
For Fassbinder:
Love is Colder than Death
Fear Eats the Soul
Fontane Effi Briest
Chinese Roulette
World on a Wire
Veronika Voss

I've never seen Chinese Roulette as I picked up a copy without English subs. Hope the time/location is reasonable so I can get to it.
I'm a big fan of Veronica Voss, and would love to see it on a big screen.
Maybe I can drag my 22 year old niece with me (hey, I dragged her to China), as I'm sure she's never seen a Fassbinder film before.

Chinese Roulette is great, but let's get back to the meaty bits:

So does anybody know if Lorenz has plans set for the long version of Querelle to ever surface? She talked about it a few times, but people have set her statements into strong doubt. Then again...

Interestingly, the older Arrow Fassbinder DVD sets have become unavailable, so we'll see what happens with many of these films.

Last night I watched the Blu-ray of Martha which got released in Germany a couple of weeks ago. It looks rought, there are improvements in color and contrast over the DVD, but not in terms of detail and resolution. The booklet states that they did a 2k scan of the 16mm reversal filmstock Martha was shot on, so this may well be down to the filmstock used, I’m not knowledgeable enough about reversal stock. To me the end result looks more like it was taken from a video source. I recently watched Eight Hours are not a Day, also shot on 16mm for TV but it looks far superior. This is by far the most disappointing of the Fassbinder restorations I’ve seen, which is a shame because Marthe is one of my favourites.

It doesn’t look too bad here, but when watched on a large display it doesn’t hold up:
