Fritz Lang's M - R2 Eureka SE [email protected]

http://www8.cd-wow.com/detail_result...duct_code=9644

Less than 6 pounds shipped... even cheaper when combined with coupons.

The 1.50 off voucher brings down the price to 4.49 (7.78 US)

Here's how the DVD compares:

It probably won't be up long at this price, so I would suggest jumping on it quickly! This is selling for around $30 at amazon.co.uk...

The Eureka should be listed as R2. cd-wow made the same mistake with The Killer (listing that one as R0, as well).

That's a scorching hot deal for an awesome set. I'd be all over it if I didn't already have it.

I've always been interested in Fritz Lang's films, so I decided to take the plunge. I'd also like to point out that these are still in stock, as mine shows as being prepared for shipment... the movie looks amazing, can't wait!

Incredible deal. I have this DVD and it is fantastic. People should be aware however Criterion is in the process of preparing a rerelease, with a new transfer. Whether this is the same transfer as the Eureka we do not know.

Also the DVD IS in fact R0, but is PAL.

Strange, both DVDBeaver and amazon.co.uk say it is R2. It's pretty much a moot point, however, as most people that can play PAL disks have an all-region player...

I love Criterion and if they release one with different extras, i'll pick that up as well... but this was too good to pass up. Would it be a good idea if I placed an identical thread in the Bargain forum?

I tried the link and it just takes me to cd-wow, and if i search for "Fritz Lang" or other variations, no luck. Is it sold out already?

Looks like the deal is dead... the link goes to the home page. They must have sold out or decided not to take a $20 loss per set... bummer.

In case anyone was interested, that was set. I just hope they don't start cancelling orders...

Unfortunately I missed placing an order by a few minutes looking for the coupon. By the time I found the link for the 1.50 off voucher the deal dead.

I placed my order last night. Got it through the HK site, cost about $8.50. One of the first old movies I saw that bowled me over and got me interested in other classic films and Peter Lorre. Thanks!

Its back! Looks like www.cd-wow.com.hk would be a better price, though.

It IS back! Unfortunately, they raised the price a whole 2 pounds

Anyway, with the 1.50 off voucher, this will cost around $10. Still a great deal! It probably won't last long, so get in while you can...

Received mine last week. Faster shipping than Deep Discount and this was from Hong Kong! Having watched the first disc I can't say enough how fantastic this edition is. I almost feel like I didn't pay enough!

They have done an amazing restoration job on this film. Not only that but the commentary includes excerpts of Fritz Lang himself interviewed back in 1965 by Peter Bogdanovich along with comments by the folks involved in the restoration and recent comments by Bogdanovich. It is filled with info on the production and the astounding effort that went into assembling this cut. It is really amazing to see the film in this new edition. Looking forward to disc two.

Thanks for the heads up - I've been waiting for this one to come back! I can never get the voucher to work for me,though.

I've tried every voucher on the internet and they are all dead. They even had Bullet In The Head PE for 12 pounds. Bummer.

So I take it this kicks the butt of the current Criterion version? Has a Criterion redo been officially announced?
