British distributors Eureka Entertainment have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of Fritz Lang's Spione (1928). The release will be available for purchase on November 17th.
Fritz Lang's penultimate silent film, Spione [Spies], is a flawlessly constructed labyrinthine spy thriller. Hugely influential, Lang's famous passion for meticulous detail combines with masterful story-telling and editing skills to form a relentless tale of intrigue, espionage, and blackmail.
Setting in stone for the first time many elements of the modern spy thriller, Spione perhaps represents the zenith of Lang's silent artistry.
