EISENSTEIN COLLECTION VOL. 2 from Palisades Tartan

Tartan UK went into administration before they could put out the second volume of their EISENSTEIN COLLECTION, but Palisades Tartan put it out a couple months ago (they also rebranded and reissued the EISENSTEIN COLLECTION VOLUME ONE - review forthcoming).  Volume 2 features ALEXANDER NEVSKY as well as Eisenstein's crowning achievements IVAN THE TERRIBLE PART I and IVAN THE TERRIBLE PART II: THE BOYAR'S PLOT.  The reconstruction of the seized and unfinished BEZHIN MEADOWS is also included as an extra.  The 3 disc set features attractive transfers of the three features with Russian mono audio and optional English subtitles.  Although it does not have the extras of Criterion's US set (an early release with interlaced transfers), it is a great buy if you just want the films in good transfers.  I had forgotten how visually ravishing the IVAN films are until I re-watched them for review.
