That's a different issue to frames actually being deleted from the movie, which I do not know to be the case in any of those examples. Though this issue with Nosferatu does demonstrate that Kino might not be very good at this interpolation lark. I'd like those guys to see The Passion of Joan of Arc or Battleship Potemkin from MoC and BFI respectively, which I've never noticed any problems on.

I recently watched the Kino Nosferatu Blu-ray at my college after watching the MOC blu-ray at home and thought it seemed choppy. Now I see why.

Just to spell it out, the MoC Blu-ray does not suffer from this malady?

The MoC disc is fine. That is how the problem was discovered; there are frames on the MoC disc that are missing on the Kino.

He talks about the film only in the vaguest of terms and spends much of the time apparently reading from the wikipedia page on 'Vampires' that he printed out. I can see why it was left off the previous release!

The Jackson piece is decent, but he's pretty much gazumped by Kalat, who leaves few stones unturned.
Ferrara came off like an friendly expert compared to R Dixon Smith.

It's probably too late to bring this up, but after the 'incident' with Kino regarding Metropolis back in 2010, why is Nosferatu again region locked?

Took advantage of Eureka's sale on a few titles, picked up the steel-book. Waited for months to buy Dr Mabuse der Spieler but gave in eventually. Miffed that I paid more for the regular Blu-ray last month than the steelbook is going for now, but that's life!

Can't wait to see Nosferatu tonight I have to say.

Here's a video of the pianist Gabriela Montero improvising a score for the entire Nosferatu at a showing in Berlin, January 18, 2014. Quite remarkable.

To show how far we have come, this is the version of Nosferatu that Eureka licensed from JEF Films and released on VHS in the 90s - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZqUKJwm6Co

I picked this up through a coupon in The Guardian newspaper at the age of 10, and was baffled by the fact that, contrary to the video box, the characters are all called by their Stoker names - i.e Orlok is Dracula, Hutter is Harker etc.

I'd love to know who did the organ score - unlike most PD silent tapes, it actually syncs up well. At one point, an orchestra cuts in. The other PD VHS standard version of Nosferatu was taken from an actual theatrical reissue and the score there is credited to Peter Schirmann.
