    Criterion Challenge 2022 Week 2: A Movie from the 1920s

    We're going into two birds, one stone territory here as I knock off a film from the AFI List as well as complete my Criterion Challenge for the week. Since it was the 1920s, I knew silent was on the docket and it was an easy choice to go with one that I know is on the AFI List.

I can just imagine the scene where Max was fired taking place in Roger Ailes' office circa 1998. There is very little difference between Howard Beale and a Glenn Beck or Keith Olbermann or even InfoWars (though they don't have the benefit of a network fortunately). The film is very well acted with every scene feeling like it could…
