the wind |victor sjostrom, 1928|
The Wind isn't merely a testament to the virtue of silent cinema, but rather a powerful demonstration of the visual conquering the audible. The quietness magnifies the emotional claustrophobia & restlessness that is so pivotal to the film, as if even the voices of everyone onscreen, along with their benevolence, is consumed by the ominous wind. In times of danger (cyclones, dust storms, etc), there is an emphasized juxtaposition & a ceaseless unnerving anxiety that presents itself as a result. Despite the obvious human against nature motif, it truly is a film where human against human is of enormous consequence, & Sjostrom displays that frightfully well, although the atmosphere is the film's colossal strength & the director's most staggering creation. Like many films in the silent canon, where the rhythm & pauses fluctuate, blend, & wane, The Wind strides through in a pensive haze defined by coarse terrain of unbearable beauty & a poetic westernized script. If not for the graceless, clearly studio-driven happy ending the film truly could be (may still be) one of the best I've seen in years.

Your thoughts will probably be more interesting than mine. :D So rusty that I gave up on writing on any others that I wanted to write about.

love that movie

Also wanted to say I watched Hawks' Monkey Business a couple days ago. I felt compelled to tell you of all people. Not great. I was kind of digging it until the transformation stuff, then I began to tune out a bit. Opening was the best part.

I didn't have a bad time with it, but it made me long for the greatness of His Girl Friday and Bringing Up Baby.

That scene was so racist lol.

That's retarded. The scene is ignorant little boys playing a game of "scalping" acting like native Americans. But that's just it - they're little boys playing a game in the 50s when filmmaking as a whole exuded racial ignorance. If anything, the ignorance is most amusing.
