Lulu could ruin every man’s life, every man she met ruined hers.

The Academy Award made once again cool silent movies these days, here is a real masterpiece of the silent Era, with the American Actress Louise Brooks who crossed the Ocean to go to Europe to work for the German director G.W. Pabst.

A related movie I like: Inglorious Basterds (2009). Directed by Quentin Tarantino. Starring : Christof Waltz; Brad Pitt; Melanie Laurent; Michael Fassbender; Diane Kruger.

Lulu poteva rovinare la vita di qualsiasi uomo, tutti gli uomini che ha incontrato hanno rovinato la sua.

La cerimonia degli Oscar in questi giorni, ha reso nuovamente cool il cinema muto; questo è un autentico capolavoro di quell’epoca, con l’attrice americana Louise Brooks che ha attraversato l’Oceano per venire in Europa a lavorare col regista Tedesco G.W. Pabst.

  1. Hi, I love Inglorious Bastards, and all the German silent movies! I would actually never have watched BASTARDS, if it hadn’t been for my teenage son, it just doesn’t look like my kind of movie… but he brings all this stuff home and I feel I “have to sit through it” – and usually I have a pleasant surprise, this was one of them!
