Pandora's Box

Brady and I watched a really great silent film this weekend - Pandora's Box. This film stars Louise Brooks as Lulu, "an amoral but naive young woman whose insouciant eroticism inspires lust and violence in those around her."

Still from Pandora's Box

At the time of its release (1929), this German film was banned throughout most of Europe and the US. It is amazing how truly ahead of its time Pandora's Box was and how relevant it still is today. If you get a chance, I would really encourage you to see this film!

I LOVE old films!! My hubby thinks I'm nuts, but they are so beautiful and different. I'll have to find this one and have a girls night (:

Definitely try to see it if you can! It's fantastic! If you watch the Criterion version, you can select from around 5-6 different scores to accompany the film. Very cool.

I think if I could look like any film star, I would like it to be Louise Brooks.
