The 'concise' and the 'big' Bruckner


(Sebastian) #1

Ulrich P. Bruckner’s two excellent encyclopedias are rather unique out there and as far as I know, have no equivalent in English.

Here are our two database links for the two books (the concise one is a special feature on the Sollima DVD box set, the big one was just re-issued).

I will post a review of the “big one” soon

Let’s hope someone does an English translation.

for the big one it would really be worth it, the small one hardly has much text at all.

I have the small one in the Sollima box, even though i can’t understand it it’s great to look at the pictures :wink:

Do you know if it’s gonna be translated into English? I won the little book and it’s great, even though my german is very poor, but the big one looks incredible.


(Sebastian) #7

no idea if someone’s going to translate it. i doubt it

Don’t hope so.
There is much information (release dates, original running times, etc) in the data parts, but for this you need not speak german, because Bruckner thankfully works with original titles.

But unfortunately Bruckner is a boring author and he has nothing interesting to say about the films, and most of the reprinted criticisms are of even worser quality.

So the amount of information makes the book valuable, but otherwise, forget it.

Are the movieposters (not the pictures) in this book in color or also black and white? I’m thinking of buying the box only for the artwork in the book as i have al the movies already. (besides the movies i’m also collecting spaghetti western artwork).


(Sebastian) #14

most, if not all, are color
