I’m reluctant to interrupt the passionate discussion currently raging in the “Sturges at Sunset” section, but if I don’t start a new thread, we’re going to hit those annoying “out of memory” errors again. So here goes: Kino has released a condensed and subtitled version of the second volume in Gaumont’s magnificent “Le Cinema Premier” series, and while some of the hardcore types around here will prefer the original French edition, the Kino version still comes up with some ten hours of fascinating material, including a wide selection of early animation by Emile Cohl, a sampling of the slapstick chases and early euro-westerns of Jean Durand, and a miscellany disc that contains early efforts by Jacques Feyder as well as some lesser known films that suggest the stylistic range of early cinema, from the poetic realist impulse of George Andre Lacroix’s “The Barges” (1911) to the elegantly abstract “Feet and Hands” (Gaston Ravel, 1915), an Oulipo-esque attempt to tell a fairly complex love story without showing a single human face. My New York Times review is here. But if folks want to talk about zombie movies, that’s OK, too . . .
