    A thick textbook on how to shoot a picture so much that it was just immediately scorched onto my brain. Most likely my favorite silent film, but it honestly feels disrespectful to limit it to only silent pictures because this is one of the best flicks, period. Images on top of images—there’s nothing better than that. There are so many great double exposures that make my eyes pop out like a Looney Toons character. You have some great double exposures…

    Classic Ethan Coen dialogue that resorts me to the belief that the transition from silent to sound was a mistake. The film’s premise is overall quite fun, and Geraldine Viswanathan delivers a good performance and brings a character to life that I actually, by the end of the movie, care about. However, the bad outweighs the good here, mainly Margaret Qualley, who is really quite obnoxious. I wouldn’t put too much blame on Qualley, who I have liked in other…
