All Men vs Weezy! Hooray
24 May 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yow, what is not to like about Louise Brooks. Seriously. This is the first of her too-few movies I've seen straight through and as Siue says she is The Most Beautiful Person In History; with her angular, boyish fashions and wry sideways smile to compliment her beaming grin, she also leaps out of her context like she got there by time machine. And there's a hell of a movie built around her. The plastic is a meller about a fair maiden's victimization by a conniving pharmacist - in fact ALL the men in this film are either ogres or clods, and there's a bald headmaster who you will laugh at a lot once I whisper you the words "Stephen Harper". But Pabst, who knows his Brecht (he did the Threepenny movie), twists this stuff two ways. When he feels like it, he directs actors with a subtlety and precision I've never seen in a silent movie before: a lot of the narrative is told entirely with the actors' eyes. But at the same time, this film is not just witty, it's GOOFY, with broad comic scenes that skirt the ridiculous in a way that challenges you from left field - dare you laugh at a silent masterpiece when it presents a spoiled aristocrat failing to milk a cow, or a horny bastard (one of several) with a Kropotkinesque goatee mincing around the dance lesson like he's in a Dwain Esper movie? It's like, popular entertainment!!
