Hee hee . . . I just watched it again tonight since writing about it got me in the mood. Henri Dacae at his most careful and restrained.

I agree that this might default into the main venue for distributing lesser-known content like obscure silents that few know about, especially from companies that aren't government subsidized a la the great German releases. It'll probably become more utilized when hi-speed data transmission is utilized across the board, and a 30 Gig film can be zapped over to a consumer in under an hour or so. Anything over than time range runs the risk of being subject to the wifi hiccups/interruptions that are so common, even in the 802.11ac protocol (I know because I experience it, even after setting in control panel for the system to NOT turn the service off to save power).

Of course, losing the collectability of cover art, insert booklets a la MoC and CC (hell I'd even miss the little inserts Kino occasionally throws in here and there a la their excellent release of the untouched print of Tartuffe by Murnau), and the danger of losing extras in general is depressing; it reminds me of the slow loss of contextual art and gatefolds when we went from albums to CD . . . and then from CD to straight iTunes download.

But hey, I've become used to this via, as you mention, filesharing, so it will feel very natural to do straight digital downloads of new restos.

I'm not sure if they made it available on SD DVD, but I'm definitely not complaining that they put it out on Blu, it sets a nice example, esp if it sells decently, that silent titles are viable on pure HD releases. But I think a dual format release would have been more user friendly, like Criterion and MoC often do.
