    The Third Man

    ★★★★★

    The setting of post-war Vienna is like supporting character here.

    shadows.footsteps.music.ferris wheel.sewer.

    One of the best character introductions of all Time.

    "Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.
    In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

    You can see now?

    Yes, I can see now.


    The drunkness of the eccentric millionaire is the best.

    The Thin Man

    ★★★★

    Charming comedy-mystery with great chemistry and banter between William Powell and Myrna Loy.

    The movie moves fast so you have to pay attention not to miss something, especially some witty and sharp lines.

    It is also famous for the excessive drinking on screen. At the time of the film's release, prohibition in the U.S. had officially ended just over a year before.

    "Well, can't you tell us anything about the case?"
    "Yes, it's putting me way behind in my drinking."

    How long will I live?
    Till the break of dawn.

    German Expressionism rulez!

    Over 100 years old movie and still fascinating with its influence, themes, set design, ending etc.

    The Cameraman

    ★★★★½

    The first film of Keaton's two-year deal with MGM, which he would later call "the worst mistake of my life".

    Many fine comic moments and set pieces like the piggybank, the dressing room, the bathhouse and of course all scenes with the monkey.

    There is something special in Buster Keaton`s deadpan expressions.

    It is fortunate, however, that THE CAMERAMAN, once considered lost, to be available for viewing today.

  • Nosferatu

    Nosferatu

    ★★★★

    "Not so hasty, young friend! No one can escape his destiny."

    "I am plagued by mosquitoes. Two have just bitten me on the neck, quite close together, one on each side"

    A lot of moments are so obviously influential on the films of today.

    And all that because during World War I some serbian farmer told the producer (Albin Grau) that his father was a vampire and one of the Undead.
