Michael Palm's documentary on low-budget auteur Edgar G. Ulmer has been given a handsome presentation in this disc from Kino Video. The original footage for Edgar G. Ulmer: The Man Off-Screen has been letterboxed at the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, while the clips from Ulmer's films are shown in the full-screen ratio of 1.33:1. The image quality for the new material is quite good, especially the studio-shot interviews (done, in true Ulmer fashion, in front of a back-projection screen), though the quality of the film clips is quite variable. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and the quality is very good except for some archival recordings of interviews with Ulmer conducted by Peter Bogdanovich; the disc includes optional English language subtitles for these recordings. The film is primarily in English, though some of the interviews are in German, with burned-in English subtitles. As a bonus, this edition includes a filmography of Ulmer's work, a gallery of still photos, and a complete feature film from the director's oeuvre, Isle Of Forgotten Sins (aka Monsoon), though unfortunately it's not one of Ulmer's better films and the source print is not in especially good shape. Still, it's a nice touch, and this is excellent viewing for film fans with an interest in the more obscure sidestreets of film history.
