About time Karel Zeman got his due over here. I already own all 3 films on Blu-ray, but it looks like Criterion has assembled a great package and they're utterly distinctive, beautifully crafted films. While in Prague, I actually visited the Karel Zeman Museum (which seems to have provided some of the bonus materials for the Criterion edition), which is a charming little space tucked away under Charles Bridge, full of props from his films and breakdowns of many of his special effects. I bought two of the films there, along with a few of his later films.
Also, since Netflix has worked with Criterion to release Roma, I'll be expecting an edition of The Other Side of the Wind any day now. . .
