I hope that they consider picking up Zoltán Huszárik's Szindbád (1971) again someday. It's one of the most beautiful color films ever made, and Kino used to distribute it years ago. It's ripe for rediscovery in the U.S.

Kino will be releasing ten restored Hungarian films:
Variety wrote:Kino Lorber has announced that it has acquired North American rights for ten newly restored classics from the Hungarian National Film Fund- Film Archive.

The titles includes “Mephisto,” directed by István Szabó, which won the Best Foreign Language Film at the 1981 Academy Awards; “Colonel Redl,” directed by Szabó and a 1986 Academy Award nominee; Szabo’s “Confidence,” winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 1980 Berlin International Film Festival and 1981 Academy Award nominee.

The others are “My 20th Century, directed by Ildikó Enyedi; and six films by Miklós Jancsó — “The Red and White,” “The Confrontation,” “Elektra, My Love,” “The Round-Up,” “Winter Wind” and “Red Psalm,”which won the Best Director award at 1972 Cannes Film Festival.
There's a lot of overlap with Second Run here, but I'll be happy to upgrade the Jancsó titles (assuming they're released on BD.)
Great news about MEPHISTO -- one of the most strangely neglected films around, it has fallen off the map for just far too long.

Wasn't "Hanussen" part of a trilogy along with "Mephisto" and "Colonel Redl"? (Just going by faint memory.) Seems to be the neglected title for some reason. (Wiki sez informal trilogy.)

Will there be a boxset? Would pre-order that right now!
