The one between the Bogart and Kieslowski sets appears to be this Busby Berkeley collection

I believe I see Herostratus on the middle left shelf, 7 left from Lubitsch in Berlin

Top left shelf also has BFI's Jeff Keen set and John Krish: A Day in the Life, plus a French set for Stray Dog, The Bad Sleep Well, and High and Low (third from the right)

Middle right shelf on the left looks like some set of war films by Carlton. I can make out In Which We Serve, A Town Like Alice, and We Dive at Dawn. I think it might also include some Powell & Pressburger films

On the left middle shelf, the red BFI release is indeed Herostratus. The MoC next to it is the regular release of Serpico, the Arrow on MoC's right is Tenderness of the Wolves, then Losey's Don Giovanni, then a DVD of Pagnol's La fille du puisatier. Slightly again on the right, the Eureka DVD is Trouble in Paradise. Just left of the Malle set is Polisse (by Maiwenn).
Below Summertime are 2 digibooks : these are French releases from TF1 : the one with the red top logo is Mortelle Randonnée and the blue logo is Garde à vue. There's a blue Amaray BR a bit on their left, also from TF1 and also from Miller : La petite voleuse. The Artificial Eye set looks like the Mizoguchi one.

The Gaumont set on the right is dedicated to early Gaumont short silent movies (Emile Cohl, Alice Guy, etc). It's called Gaumont Premier, and is the 2nd volume out of 2.
The Carlton set has In Which We Serve, A Town Like Alice, We Dive At Dawn, The Red Shoes, The Importance of Being Earnest, Oliver Twist, Henry V, Genevieve, Hamlet and I can't read the last one.

Bottom screen right:

Joan Crawford WB box vol 1 with Mildred Pierce missing
??? four title WB box, looks sealed
Harold Lloyd New Line box
2 TCM 4-film collections, no way to see which ones
??? 4 DVDs
Humphrey Bogart Signature Collection WB box, I think
??? WB box set with DVD missing
Kieslowski set, not sure from what label
Val Lewton box set at the end
The WB box next to Joan Crawford's is thr Barabara Stanwyck Signature Collection. It looks like the missing DVD is for Executive Suite
The TCM set on the left is John Wayne Westerns
The TCM set on the right is either American or Broadway Musicals
The next DVD, I can't quite make it out, but looks like it might read Tracey & Hepburn
Next are DVDs for Alice Adams and A Woman Rebels
There's a copy of The Maltese Falcon. I can't tell if it's beside, or a part of, a box set.
The next box set must be for Busby Berkeley, as I can make out spines reading Dames and 42nd Street.
