The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera ★★★★

A solid silent caper.

This has always been a great story, so it was fun to see the original film adaptation. It featured solid performances, a moving score, and some great set pieces. It kept me invested and entertained. I also felt like it struck a delicately balance between moments of humor and ones of suspense. My one critique was just that it ran a bit long for my taste. I think there were several scenes that could have been trimmed, especially in the opening act. Otherwise, it was a fun time.
