Description: One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo).

Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with.

Films Due A Quality Blu-ray Transfer (10 movies items)

" How is it that the lesser known title in a director's oeuvre gets chosen for a Blu-ray release over their famous one? I don't believe it's a one off thing either. It's happening with a lot of European directors. As good a film as Diary of A Lost Girl is, it's no Pandora's Box. "
