Is 'The Psycho Legacy' Bluray German Import worth buying in terms of A/V quality?

Are these worth buying?

Only David Lynch film I've seen is Dune.
These two are in HMV's three for twenty. But then the Lynch boxset is on amazon for around 17 but doesn't include The Ephelump Man.

Both are fantastic films, and easily surpass Dune (which is one of Lynch's weakest films in my opinion). The Elephant Man is a brilliant and moving biopic with great performances from John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins, whilst Eraserhead is Lynch's first full length work which he made in college, and is a mad fusion of fractured black and white and nightmare visuals; themes which would go on to fill a lot of Lynch's later work.

I own the Studio Canal BD of The Elephant Man, and it is a superb release, but don't own the UK BD of Eraserhead - I'm personally holding out for the Criterion edition, as I am pretty certain that it will be a better release.

Yep, I heard stirrings of Criterion doing Eraserhead too. It is without any hyperbole one of the greatest movies ever made...

I have this set. Its really good actually. Nice art cards of Novak's films and the second disc has a good documentary on the man.

Thanks for that. I think I'll pick up The Elephant Man and maybe consider getting the boxset for Eraserhead. I'm assuming a Criterion will be region locked and expensive. For all it's faults I really like Dune so I'd be able to upgrade that too if I go with the boxset.

Both The Elephant Man and Eraserhead are superb films the StudioCanal Collection release of The Elephant Man is a stellar release and the Eraserhead BD is also well worth buying. Also, the Mulholland Drive StudioCanal Collection BD is a must buy for any David Lynch fan. (If you want to read about them, reviews are on my website.)

As bizarre_eye, both are far superior to Dune.

Superior to Dune... but Dune has a lot going for it. Some of the visual effects have dated badly, but the sets and costumes are incredible, the boil-covered Baron Harkonnen is a wonderfully grotesque villain, and ultimately the film does a pretty damn good job of distilling the very complicated geopolitical economics of the book into a 140min movie...
