    I finally saw Borzage's Lucky Star (1929).

    I cannot believe this is not on SilentEra's top 300! What an oversight!!

    A beautiful, moving film. But after setting up a polarity between the immoral man of material promises and the moral man of the life of the spirit, the ending spoiler 5 years 5 months ago

    Just saw 1929's The Pagan, with a frequently shirtless Ramon Novarro and Rene Adoree (not shirtless). Filmed on location in Tahiti, it is fairly conventional material in terms of plot, but I found intriguing the subversive treatment of Christianity, which is shown to represent a culture that is uptight, hypocritical, and, ultimately-- despite the pretext of pious compassion-- predatory. The titular paganism comes off as relatively healthier and kinder. The director is W.S. Van Dyke, whose White Shadows in the South Seas is also rather bold in its condemnation of Western imperialism. 5 years 6 months ago

    For anyone willing to come to Krakow (Poland) on 6-9 XII 2012, the 13th Silent Movie Festival will be held here. Each movie will be accompanied by live music (with various types of genres and subgenres). 5 years 9 months ago
