I laughed, I cried, I thought a lot about F.W. Munrau's Sunrise
for some reason I am sure lurks in the back of my subconscious mind.
Silent film pastiches are not exactly the most popular film style (Guy Maddin and Esteban Sapir are the only directors of such to come immediately to mind) but it's really not hard to see why this has enjoyed a somewhat broader range of success. It's just damn infectiously fun
, like the best of Hollywood's 1920s fare.
I'm still basking in the after-film glow. I think I'll have a stupid grin for a few hours now, thank you very much.
