Our first look at this new collection of eight Soviet feature films looks very good, with 35mm print materials utilized for the high-quality video transfers. Some of the films are presented for the first time on DVD home video: Lev Kuleshov’s The Extraordinary Adventures of Mr. West in the Land of the Bolsheviks (1924), Lev Kuleshov’s By the Law (1926), Dziga Vertov’s Stride, Soviet! (1926), Esfir Shub’s Fall of the Romanov Dynasty (1927), Boris Barnet’s The House on Trubnaya Square (1928), Sergei Eisenstein’s Old and New (1929), Victor Turin’s Turksib (1929) and Mikhail Kalatozov’s Salt for Svanetia (1930).

The films are accompanied by film scores by Robert Israel, Eric Beheim, Alexander Rannie and Zoran Borisavljevic.

Even at first glance, we highly recommend this new boxed collection.
