Melies Swan Song as Satan
23 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, this fixation with the dark world. Here, a princess has been kidnapped by the Devil. He takes her away to his lair somewhere. The prince has to find her and release her. Satan is helped by an evil man whom he intimidates into helping him. This film had more devils than normal, coming in all sizes and shapes. What these films always suffer from is a clarity of direction of the plot, sacrificing story for spectacle. I suppose this is justified by giving audiences visuals they may have never seen before. Still, I wonder if their level of sophistication was heightened and these presentations became old hat. There are some fun things in this movie. After watching Melies play the Devil so many time, I still get a kick out of his emotive being.
