Re: 98th Annual Ronalds (film nominations)

I totally approve of the love for Nosferatu and especially Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler (one of my favourite movies). I've been less impressed with Eisenstein than I should be but I have a hard time getting over the obvious propaganda angle of his movies. It seriously hampered my enjoyment of them - that's also true for other movies made under similar conditions. But I do understand why Potemkin sweeped the awards. I would have expected a bit more for The Hands of Orlac. I must confess that I haven't seen many of the nominated movies from the 20s (and it's quite possible that some of them don't even exist anymore). I really need to watch Greed.
Now with a theme tune.
