Anyone Who Likes Silent Film, Help Needed!

Postby Oran » Tue Feb 02, 2010 9:01 am

Can you, please, recommend some silent films you liked.

The thing is, I love film, and I only very recently watched Nosferatu, which I loved, beyond loved, I was, in fact, enraptured by it.(there's kind of a barometer)
I had seen a few clips of The Kid and some Buster Keaton stuff, which was great, but never a full feature. So, if you can recommend something you enjoyed, then I will be humbly and much appreciative.
Also, any silhouette films, anything silent.

Sorry to bother any of you, and your all too showing, charitable natures.

Can't stand trawling through mediocre film to get to the gold, so give me a solution, please, and thank you in advance.
I'm sure there are pros and cons to having your ass handed to you, however, if anything, it does present a quite unique perspective.

I grew up on those films as a kid (guess I'm showing my age here) - try any films with the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Christopher Lee, Bella Legosi...

The Narcissist exists whereby every activity and relationship is defined by the hedonistic need to acquire the symbols of spiritual wealth, this becoming the only expression of rigid, yet covert, social hierarchies. It is a culture where liberalism only exists insofar as it serves a consumer society, and even art, sex and religion lose their liberating power.

I saw a good Chaplin movie, I think it was called City Lights. Remarkably funny, and with good social commentary.
