The Phantom Carriage

The Phantom Carriage ★★★½

Hoop-Tober 3.0: Film #30

The Phantom Carriage is a film I can recognize as culturally very significant, and one whose importance in the craft of filmmaking is pretty undeniable. It's one of the first movies to have extensive photographic effects, and one that actually had a style of editing. Introduced editing techniques, such as complex flashbacks and flashback within flashbacks. For that I really appreciate its significance. Same can be said for its eerie atmosphere, and the rather complex narrative for a film with so many limitations.
