(OK) Pabst's and Brooks's Lulu is an anticipation, the flapper meet the femme noir and the 60s heroine. Men are poor thing around her, even his father ans his husbands, Some scenes are so well mounted is space and tension...

Description: One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst’s lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora’s Box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora’s Box is one of silent cinema’s great masterworks and a testament to Brook ... (more)

150 From Around The World: My Fave Foreign Films (150 movies items)

"Here's a film that I hesitated before putting on this list because in order to help me decide which titles to put in my favorite foreign films list, I went with those mives from other conutries which also spoke in a foreign language. However, since Pandora's Box is from the silent era, it's "foreigness" might not be as evident. But I came to the conclusion that as a piece of cinema that is widely considered iconic with a cultural movement from the early stages of filmmaking, it's defintely worth"

" Date: 4/29/2021 Viewed: Criterion Re-watch Note: I haven't watched Pandora's Box since I was in High School and I remember liking it. After watching it again on the Criterion Channel, it holds up very well, Pandora's Box is a masterpiece in my opinion. I don't know where to begin with this movie because everything about it is fantastic. I love Louise Brooks as Lulu, and she is so lovely to watch on screen. Pandora's Box has the best pacing for a 2-hour movie because it goes by so quickly. Y"

"Feb 25th Coming at the end of the Roaring Twenties crazily this is one of the most sensual movies I have ever seen. Louise Brookes is irresistible. The only problem is that the director could have cut this movie in half, it's run time was too much for the basic plot. 6.0"

Films Due A Quality Blu-ray Transfer (10 movies items)

" How is it that the lesser known title in a director's oeuvre gets chosen for a Blu-ray release over their famous one? I don't believe it's a one off thing either. It's happening with a lot of European directors. As good a film as Diary of A Lost Girl is, it's no Pandora's Box. "
