Video: How Do the Discs Look?
The 1.33:1 presentations here are definitely not optimal (very few silent films are these days), but for standard-def, the three pictures here come across pretty nicely. The quality of transfer prints used obviously waver in quality - sometimes it's bad, sometimes it's not-quite-as-bad - but black levels are relatively consistent, and contrast is handled well. Unfortunately, one should never assume a silent film set like this should look amazing, but Kino has nevertheless done a fine job liberating these early Lang titles from the vaults.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The Dolby Digital 2.0 tracks here sound fine technically, but like so many scores for silent films, you may find yourself simply switched them off. Aljoscha Zimmermann's music is sometimes appropriate and in keeping with the tone and feel of the movies, but I found the tracks frequently distracting.
