Caught the TCM premier of this on Silent Sunday and was completely blown away. Not only do the restored scenes help to clarify some plot points, but they also amplify the emotional impact of the film. Glorious! Big old thank you to Buenos Aires, Kino International and the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung!

Yeah baby! I want to get the Criterion collection of this film.

There is no Criterion Collection version. This is for the new Kino edition and I'd say that they are rivaling Criterion as far as silents go. However, Criterion has some nice new DVDs coming out. Did you get the e-mail about "Cronos"?

But of course, I'll be updating my copy soon. I just bought the Criterion collections of IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES and ANTICHRIST. Hm. I was almost sure that there is a criterion to this one....let me check....

Nope. There is a Criterion Collection edition for Lang's "M" and one of the Dr. Mabuse films, but not "Metropolis".

it's to be released on dvd and blu. http://www.joblo.com/digital/index.php?id=7602
there was an ad in one of the latest Criterion dvds I rented

But that's for the new Kino edition and not Criterion. Criterion doesn't even have the rights to the last two restorations (2001 and 2009, each respectively released a year later on DVD).
