    I think "Passion of Joan of Arc" is one of the greatest films ever made and have been watching the rest of Dreyer's films in order and have found personally they haven't matched up to what he achieved in 1929. "Ordet" is widely considered to be his masterpiece, but as much as I appreciated the mastery of his direction and the never less than fascinating characters it left me cold. Yes, the end is affecting, but the message is hard to swallow, even glibly disrespectful, if you are not religious. "Ordet" seems to be a direct challenge to those of no or little faith and though it's easy to admire I found it impossible to love. 8 years 9 months ago
