EL VIENTO (1928)

12 years, 6 months ago at Nov 23 17:34
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 ... read more

View all The Wind reviews
Letty moves to West Texas from the East and it seems that the wind always blows and the sand gets everywhere. While living with relatives, she finds that she is not welcomed by the wife. With no where to go, she marries a man who disgusts her. Her new home is a small shack with the wind and the sand constant companions. When it is necessary for most of the men to go out into the sand storm, one stays back to have his way with Letty and that costs both of them.

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"So many late silent films are infused with a delirious energy, a sheer delight in the transportive powers of the cinema, and Sweden’s original film genius, Victor Sjöström, was renowned as a master of subjective, otherworldly moving images. With the hallucinatory The Wind, he delivered his most captivating visual play of subjective and objective realities, casting Lillian Gish as an East Coast virgin who’s tormented on an ineffable psychical (and ambiguously erotic) level by the overbearin"

"15.5."

"15.5. Kinokonserttielokuvassa on ihan kivaa luontoelementin käyttöä, mutta jotenkin en saanut tästä yhtään mitään irti. Erikoistehosteet ovat sopivan mielipuolisia, mutta suurimman osan elokuvan kestosta minun oli liian vaikea suodattaa Kehä III:n ulkopuolta sönkkääviä lännen miehiä. Nautin suuresti näytöksen aikana häiriköineen miehen ulosheittämisen katselusta. Kiitos Orionin henkilökunta - tiedät kuka olet. Heitä vastaisuudessa kaikki ihmiset ulos."
