  • The Blue Angel

    The Blue Angel

    On the nature of image and its reproduction and distribution; on copies without an original. The Blue Angel becomes a reflection of its own unique position in the international cinema world of the early 30s (to paraphrase Patrice Petro).

    Features a veteran Jannings, building on previous German roles (by the end, he's once again an emasculated, humiliated clown-man) and a magical early effort from Dietrich. The contrast between their performances is striking. Her Lola Lola builds on Brooks' Lulu in…

I was gonna watch 4 movies…
