a moment of silence please…

A friend loaned me this movie…

An ode to the silent film era, and the emergence of talkies, it’s fabulous!

Made even more appealing by this…

The people in the film were pretty good too.

The film channels much of what made silent films what they were: cameras, lenses, film speeds, aspect ratios, period hair and clothing,

and silence.

Sound is used twice (the way color was in Schindler’s List), sparingly, to make a point.

Gorgeous little movie, wish they’d released it in our backwater…

well, hooray for DVDs.
