As of Thursday, fans of Kino Lorber’s eclectic catalog can now watch its movies and shorts for free on Hulu.
Kino Lorber has made available 35 of its 700-plus titles during limited windows on Hulu or its subscription service Hulu Plus, with plans to expand the number of films in the coming months. Among the films included in this launch are restored editions of “The Blue Angel,” Buster Keaton's “The General” and Fritz Lang's “The Complete Metropolis,” as well as “Le Quattro Volte,” “Momma's Man” and the French thriller “Army of Crime.”
The documentaries “Fela Kuti: Music is the Weapon,” “Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould,” “Two in the Wave” and “Videocracy” are also included in this first batch, along with 18 of Keaton’s short films.
"Our presence on Hulu will allow us to present our selection of classic and art house films to a new audience seeking an experience beyond the latest blockbuster," said Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber. "We spent quite a bit of time working with the Hulu team and are excited about the pipeline of top-tier releases planned for the immediate future."
Yorgos Lanthimos' “Dogtooth” is on tap for August.
