Robert J. Flaherty
|Robert J. Flaherty’s award-winning Man of Aran uses stunning location photography and brilliant montage editing to build a forceful drama of life on the Aran Islands. Situated among the frequent and violent storms that slam into its barren landscape, the islands are “three wastes of rock” off the western coast of Ireland. With a small crew, Flaherty spent nearly two years shooting, developing, and assembling footage of the islanders’ Herculean efforts to survive in unbearably harsh conditions.|

This is a well put-together package by Home Vision. The image is by no means pristine - damage is quite evident and although it is not as sharp as some might desire - taking into consideration the age of the film and its history, I think we are lucky to be seeing it as good as it is. Contrast and black levels are excellent. Audio is a larger failing, but by no means inaudible. The extras are super and really help with the appreciation of the film.out of
To a certain degree I was reminded of a favorite film of mine - Michael Powell's "The Edge of the World".
