Panorama From Top of a Moving Train

Panorama From Top of a Moving Train (1898)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Panorama pris d'un train en marche

There's nothing overly special here but the camera is set on top of a train and for a minute we get to see various parts of the town, which it is traveling through. I've seen a lot of films like this and today they seem either strange or worthless but I guess at the time they were released people got a kick out of being able to see this stuff. There are a few bridges that the train travels under and I guess you would call these the best moments of the film. If you're looking for any of that magic from Melies then you'd be best to start somewhere else. This is historically interesting but that's about all.
