PANDORA'S BOX (1928, GERMANY)
My own personal March movie madness. My goal is make 31 posts in 31 days about 31 movies. They all must be non-U. S. films that I haven’t seen before. Why do I make this stipulation? Don’t know exactly, by we all have to have goals, don’t we?
Day four, from Germany’s Weimar Republic
Pandora’s Box (1928)
G. W. Pabst’s allegorical tale of lust and fate featuring the captivating Louise Brooks and her Moe Howard/Leonard Nimoy/Javier Bardeem in No Country for Old Men haircut. I can’t say it blew me away, but interesting viewing from the late silent era.
