Conclusion: TLEFilms delivers a meticulous restoration and Universum Film delivers an enticing release. Yes, English speakers will be disappointed with the abundance of German-language special features, but importers should be well acquainted with settling for less when it comes to supplemental packages.
Summary: Criterion has once more done a bang-up job restoring a cinema classic. Fritz Lang's 'M' is a genuine masterpiece. The Blu-ray looks terrific, and has a number of excellent and informative bonus features. Very highly recommended.
Conclusion: If you reside in a Region-B territory, I strongly recommend that you consider adding Eureka Entertainment's Blu-ray release of Fritz Lang's M to your library. I personally prefer this release over Criterion's. Both, however, are exceptionally strong. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Conclusion: This is a very special release, folks. Not only is the presentation of Fritz Lang's M exceptionally strong, but Criterion's Blu-ray release also contains a variety of terrific supplemental features.
Summary: An intensely personal docu about politics and a film about silence that's full of words, Nicolas Prividera's intellectually rewarding "M" teems with contradictions, which are its very meaning.
Summary: Flirtations with pornography, prostitution and violence spell out the dark underbelly of Japanese society, but narrative details are left unconfirmed in Ryuichi Hiroki's intriguing "M." Pic is skedded for local release in January and is likely to duplicate Hiroki's previous festival success abroad.
