RW Fassbinder: 17 films $47 @ amazon uk

Rainer Werner Fassbinder Volume 1 (1969-1972) 9 discs

Rainer Werner Fassbinder Volume 2 (1973-1982) 8 discs

Both collections are going for 17.99 each, minus VAT, is about 15 each.

Volume 1 review

Volume 2 review

Both are released by Arrow Films, remastered transfers that rival the Criterion counterparts, and both sets loaded with extras.

Just about any $35 Philips at Best Buy or Target can be made region free in about 10 seconds.

Great find, I ordered Vol. 1 a year ago for GBP 28, but will definitely go for Volume 2 now, 81% off is amazing!

The Werner Herzog boxsets are also a great deal, especially the Encounters in the Natural World in BluRay for 15.99. The films included on the 3 discs are: Encounters at the End of the World, Grizzly Man, White Diamond, La Soufriere & Flying Doctors of East Africa.

BEWARE: I've seen some negative reviews for this set (which is why I never ordered it) so order with caution.

Thanks OP. I've decided to pick up both volumes after seeing the ridiculous prices on the Amazon US site. This is a great deal, and I'm in for both volumes.

Re: RW Fassbinder: 17 films $47 @ amazon uk

It's going to take a while to watch all of them, as I tend to savor boxsets, and not to watch them all in 1 rush. But still glad to get all these films in nice editions. I guess now to wait for the 2 Artificial Eye boxsets....

They are slim cases with no inserts, just the disc.

Re: RW Fassbinder: 17 films $47 @ amazon uk

I just ordered V.2. With the strengthening dollar, they're now $26.99 USD each DELIVERED to the USA.

Can anyone comment on the films in V.1? I haven't seen much of his really early stuff, & would like to get an idea if I would enjoy them before spending the $'s. I do like everything I've seen by Fassbinder. The oldest one I've seen is Why Does Herr R. Run Amok. Other then that & World On A Wire, I've mostly seen the later Criterion issues.
