The 8 films included in the BFI set that you won't find here are as follows: The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz (1967); Last Words (1968); Precautions Against Fanatics (1969); Handicapped Future (1970); The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner (1975); How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck (1976); Huie's Sermon (1980), and God's Angry Man (1980).
The 6 films featured here that aren't on the BFI set include Even Dwarfs Started Small; Ballad of the Little Soldier; Where the Green Ants Dream; Lessons of Darkness; Little Dieter Needs to Fly, and My Best Fiend.
If you do the math, the price of the BFI set (including shipping) divided by 8 comes to about ten and a half bucks per film. That's ultimately why I re-ordered that set. I do hope this price will drop before its release. It's a lot of money to spend and I haven't seen most of these films but I haven't seen a Herzog film that I didn't really like/love. My only disappointment would be the exclusion of Grizzly Man.
Hope this helps!

I also watched "Nosferatu the Vampyre" and some of the scenes really sparkle in detail and colour compared to the Anchor Bay dvd I own. The blu-ray does seems less uniform than the dvd though with some scenes appearing soft while others have wonderful detail. The overall soft look of the dvd seems to visually unify the movie better. This sometimes makes the blu-ray seem flawed since one is aware of the discrepancies in texture throughout the film though this may also have simply been the director's choice in using sharp or soft focus in various scenes which comes to the forefront when viewing the movie on blu-ray. Overall though it is thrilling to see Nosferatu in blu-ray since the movie seems to sparkle with a clarity and richness of blacks and colour compared to the dvd. Even a scene as simple as Lucy reading from her husband's journal looks amazingly beautiful given the clarity and enhanced richness of colour over the dvd. In another scene where Dracula enters Lucy's room the depth of field is narrowed to the flowers by the mirror so that most of the image is slightly out of focus including Lucy's image in the mirror and Lucy, but when Dracula enters the room he moves right up to the flowers so that he is perfectly in focus while lucy is still out of focus. This is something that doesn't show up on the dvd since everything appears slightly soft on the dvd.Read more ›
