Audrey Kupferberg: Russian Emigres In Paris and Wagner & Me

May 17, 2013

Two new DVD releases make for worthwhile viewing. The first is a packaged set of five incredible silent films from Flicker Alley.  It’s called FRENCH MASTERWORKS:  RUSSIAN EMIGRES IN PARIS 1923-1929, and features 5 films on 5 discs. THE BURNING CRUCIBLE and THE LATE MATHIAS PASCAL are genuine masterpieces featuring one of the cinema’s most talented but forgotten stars, Ivan Mosjoukine.
