Unoboxing the Subkultur limited digipack edition




EDIT:

Old 2011 post:

The original script for SILENT TRIGGER (1987) pre-dates DIE-HARD, but the movie is definitely visually influenced by various films of the late 80's and early 90's (I always think of Sarah Connor running under fire against a wall of glass behind her while the SWAT team spray bullets at her in T2 when I see Gina Bellman do the same in a similar shot )...

For me Silent Trigger is almost the 70's William Friedkin version of Die Hard. Die Hard as it is, is indeed a very character based film, but Silent Trigger is an entirely ambient character film.

That's a very interesting idea, I can see SILENT TRIGGER within Friedkin's oeuvre...

You've seen Sorcerer right? Dolph's shooter lives within the same kind of purgatory that Roy Scheider does in Sorcerer.

Now that's a cool theory (bring them on if you have more, about this film or another) ! 8)

PS :
I've seen one of the first 4K screenings of the restored SORCERER with an intro by Friedkin himself (and a full evening Q&A with the man two days later): it looked a new pristine 35mm print of a recent film! I so recommend the new Blu-ray...

I've only ever seen it on TV, so I think the Blu Ray would be superb.

And here's a third German edition from Inked Pictures Label to be available September 10th.
https://www.facebook.com/31719890176366 ... =3&theater
http://www.medienversand.at/DVD/Demnaec ... ---B-.html

It's a mediabook with 2 covers (125 copies each), booklet (the in-depth "making of" I wrote?), a poster and limited card, as well as the interview I hooked up with writer Sergio Altieri... seems to be the same as the Subkultur edition.
(I recommend not to buy the Koch Media (which has a weaker HD master and no extras)
