Documentary on lens flare. How to add it to almost every scene, every discussion, every character's face as they are talking. All the time, every time.

Still way better than the original.

The zombie apocalypse apparently also creates a TON of white sheets of paper everywhere in the streets.

But even with all the inadvertent humor it is a really awful film.

The resolution of this film is awful. Worst I have seen from Lubitsch.

The Criterion release will be the full 220 minute version, not the 150 minute version that was available previously.

One of the better Lang films until that horseshit final 5 minutes.

Movie is 94% slo-mo, 6% sped up. 100% garbage.

Christophter Nolan fans take note! You will love this film as it stupidly overexplains Every. Single. Thing. Constantly...repeatedly, depressingly. And on top of that it sucks plot hole shit.

Edison audio track is ESSENTIAL

Visually it perfectly captures the famous Dore illustrations. Cannot think of another film of this period that looked like a film.

Oh boy, Did I ever hate this film. Painful to finish.

...well made though.

I found myself siding with the old timey, conservative, lawyers which was obviously not intended. BB’s annoying, vapid, inconsiderate, heartless, manipulative, simple, and anti-intellectual character annoyed me to no end.

Loved the first 2/3. ...Absolutely nonsensical and idiotic final 1/3.

I have seen three film adaptations of this story (two are on the 500<400 list). A good film, but the modified ending of this version weakens the impact.

I just finished reading the book before watching the film. The book is close to perfect.

This adaptation is the same story, but told flatly and shallowly at 10x speed.

To me it is either a hack commission work that needed to be completed as fast as possible, a spiteful adaptation by those offended by the book, or a film edited by a madman who decided to cut 75% of the film.

That this was half decent can be attributed to it being half directled by Robert Montgomery.

Using the voices of kids was an awful idea.

Might want to watch this and Morgiana as a double feature.
