Reception

A Movie Mail review says, "Add to this a couple of characteristically invigorating shorts by Mexico’s Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuarón, and a wonderfully left-field experiment in biography by Guy Maddin and Isabella Rossellini, and you have an essential collection."

A Scotsman review says, "With many of the films boasting insightful director commentaries, too, it's also like having your own film-school tutorials. The best one comes from Guillermo Del Toro, courtesy of the self-deprecating chat-track for his extremely rough-looking noir thriller, Doña Lupe, shot when he was 19.

A DVD Verdict review criticised the release for including Wasp - "Been there, done that" - apparently unaware that the previous volume it appeared on was only available in the US.
