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)

"27.11. (Teatteri/DCP) Pandoran lippaan piti tulla 35-milliseltä filmiltä. Sitten salin tuolissa mukavasti istuessani alkaakin digitykki sylkeä latteaa kuvaansa kankaalle. Meni vähän fiilis heti kättelyssä. Olen sitten vastarannan räkäkiiski ja myönnän, etten saanut tästä hirveästi irti. Alusta alkaen olo oli puutunut, enkä jaksanut innostua tästä ehkä tuolloin uudenlaisesta, mutta nyt jo kliseeksi kokemastani viattoman naisen alamäestä kertovasta murhetarinasta. Koska luen "

"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. "
