Astonishing!

I just watched this silent film and I was impressed. I've heard some great things about this controversial film and have always wanted to watch it. Well, I finally got the chance to do so and for anyone who's a cinematic film buff, you should give it a chance.

The camerawork is absolutely stunning for its time and the lead actress who played Joan gave the performance of a lifetime.

For those interested in filmmaking- this is a must see. For those who don't give a rats ass about great movies should shy away from it. You just wouldn't understand.

Actually, there is. I was shocked.

There is a scene...and a very nice close-up, I might add, of a woman breast-feeding. The baby pulls away to watch the crowd and you're provided an immaculate view of nips.

Add in the fact you have a woman burning at the stake and I'm sure you'd consider it a win. I'm kidding there of course, but the effects for its time was pretty good.

I had a friend get it for me, I'll see what I can do and PM you. :thumb:

Yeah, it is good. It's been a while since I watched it, and I was younger (maybe 15 years old or so) but I vividly remember those closeups on Joan, and her worried, confused face. Definitely not a warrior-type look.

The director, Dreyer, made several other great religious movies. His most acclaimed is Ordet. I saw it, but it didn't leave the great impression on me that it leaves many, many other people. I recommend viewing it.

Even as someone who is fairly into movies I still can't handle silent films. The only one I have made it all the way though is Metropolis which has apparently been finally restored to the original cut and we may see it on DVD in a few months.

Really? Not even City Lights? Not even The General?

Keaton and Chaplin's movements alone are much more enjoyable than Groucho's zingers, to me.

Oh, man. I love silents. For comedies, Keaton, Lloyd and Chaplin can't be beat. And some of Hitchcock's silents are fantastic. I actually haven't seen Joan, so I will definitely check it out (I would, even without the boobies).
