EL VIENTO (1928)

“Salvando sus limitaciones por la muy lejana fecha de su realización y el añadido final feliz impuesto por la distribuidora, cabe situar a "EL viento" entre las películas más notables del cine mudo estadounidense.

El alucinante ambiente que se respira en una cabaña aislada en medio del desierto americano, unido a la terrible presencia de un fustigador viento y los ciclones -que se erigen en los verdaderos protagonistas de la película- hacen que ésta posea una densidad emocional y una visión epopéyica extraordinarias, plasmada a través de las delirantes ensoñaciones de su brillante protagonista, encarnada por Lillian Gish.

"Lillian Gish Sjostrom, who would later go on to be the male lead of Ingmar Bergman’s Wild Strawberries, first gained notoriety as a director of silent films. In his take on a Texas transplant’s descent into madness as “the wind” and the dirt conspire to destroy everything, the Swede gives trains his camera on Gish’s isolated Letty –- a woman in a wild, foreign place who is literally being battered by the elements. Gish brought this property to the attention of her studio, hand-picked"
