Product Description

Product Description

The director that both Milos Forman and Francois Truffaut have called "the greatest filmmaker alive today," Werner Herzog has taken his camera to parts of the world that no other director would dare go, and told stories in ways no one had ever considered. These sixteen masterpieces, which blur the line between "fiction" and "documentary," illustrate why Herzog truly is the most daring, visionary, and dangerous filmmaker alive today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elegant looking set... Aug. 23 2014
By Edmonson TOP 1000 REVIEWER

The Herzog collection has 16 films from 1970-1999. This set is in a hardcover book format which includes 46 pages of essays and information about the movies, and then sturdy cardboard holders for the movies themselves. I have only just started to watch the movies in the set, but I'm please with the quality of "Aguirre:the Wrath of God" both for its picture quality and sound compared to a dvd version I have.

I also watched "Nosferatu the Vampyre" and some of the scenes really sparkle in detail and colour compared to the Anchor Bay dvd I own. The blu-ray does seems less uniform than the dvd though with some scenes appearing soft while others have wonderful detail. The overall soft look of the dvd seems to visually unify the movie better. This sometimes makes the blu-ray seem flawed since one is aware of the discrepancies in texture throughout the film though this may also have simply been the director's choice in using sharp or soft focus in various scenes which comes to the forefront when viewing the movie on blu-ray. Overall though it is thrilling to see Nosferatu in blu-ray since the movie seems to sparkle with a clarity and richness of blacks and colour compared to the dvd. Even a scene as simple as Lucy reading from her husband's journal looks amazingly beautiful given the clarity and enhanced richness of colour over the dvd. In another scene where Dracula enters Lucy's room the depth of field is narrowed to the flowers by the mirror so that most of the image is slightly out of focus including Lucy's image in the mirror and Lucy, but when Dracula enters the room he moves right up to the flowers so that he is perfectly in focus while lucy is still out of focus. This is something that doesn't show up on the dvd since everything appears slightly soft on the dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful blu-ray package Aug. 6 2014

This is an incredible set.....beautiful packaging and many excellent Herzog films tranferred to blu-ray in one collection. The quality of the transfers is variable but all of them are superior to the earlier DVD editions. I would have appreciated more supplemental material but I'm not going to quibble....this needs to be in every Herzog fan's collection. Now I'm hoping for volume 2!!

Absolutely fantastic set, one of the very best director sets out there and no better way to get introduced to one of the best cinematic minds out there. Highly recommended for cinephiles and lovers of art.

While these certainly aren't reference quality transfers, they are significant upgrades from the old anchor bay dvd sets.

Packaging is attractive and solid
