The film was almost impossible to see for years, known only by reputation until a small but revelatory revival in the '90s. It finally comes to DVD in a handsome edition by Criterion, which also features the 60-minute documentary "Requiem for a Killer: The Making of Blast of Silence," shot largely in 1991 by director Wilfried Reichart (after the film's revival at the Berlin Film Festival) and expanded by Robert Fischer in 2007. Baron is a good host, sharing stories and observations as he walks through the locations (circa 1991) and talks about the film and his career, and he bookends the production with new interviews from his home in 2006. Also features galleries of stills comparing the film's locations then and now and dozens of Polaroids (most of them scuffed and faded with time) shot on the set of the production, a booklet with a new essay by film critic Terrence Rafferty, and a four-page graphic-novel adaptation of the film by artist Sean Phillips (who also drew the DVD cover art).
