"Spirits surround us on every side... they have driven me from hearth and home, from wife and child."

Prior to F.W. Murau's Nosferatu there was Robert Weine's silent horror masterpiece Das Kabinett des Doktor Caligari (translated to the more common title; The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari). In the annals of the horror genre, these two instances of German Expressionistic cinema stand above... read more

If I recall correctly, I saw this movie when I was living in England. There, I took a movie course which I found just great. Every week we would watch a movie starting with 'Cabiria' released in 1914 (even though it is considered a classic, it was an awful 3 hours long silent epic, I think only 3 of us stayed until the end). So, we started from the very beginning of motion picture history and move... read more

"11.9. Yksi Lontoon-matkan kohokohdista oli käydä katsomassa kaksi elokuvaa BFI Southbankilla. Vaikka liput olivat kalliita, ja leffat näytettiin digitaalisina, on koko kompleksi sellainen, että haluan muuttaa sinne asumaan. Lisäksi BFI:n kaupassa oli iskeä ostohysteria, vaikka hinnat olivatkin esimerkiksi Amazonia kalliimpia. Itse leffa sitten taas on juonenkuljetukseltaan vähän turhan paljon "IT WAS YOU ALL ALONG!":ia, mutta sen lavasteet ovat aivan mielettömän upeat. Esityksessä "

" Note : Honestly, except for the funny masterpieces by/with Charles Chaplin, I always found it difficult to get really interested in silent movies. But don't misinterpret my words though! I do enjoy other silent movies but they never really blow me away and this movie is a good example. Basically, it is one of the famous movies representing the German expressionism and it was indeed quite gorgeous to look at. However, even though the story was intriguing, I got restless due to the lack of dialo"
