this is where the trilogy started. thanks to Mr. Bongo Films we now have the entire set looking as good as ever possible all in theme matching DVD keep cases. this initial release has so much historical ground to cover the demarcation points blur each other. multiple viewings are necessary to suss out the what, why, and who. if you are up to the challenge of silent film plot theory you will arrive at central character thread - Timosh is in all three, but is a different charcter in the hallmark Earth. if you have the stuff, this could be a right on endeavor into one of the pioneers of quality film making with knack for broad vision visuals vs. narrative of character development.
