Best Episode So Far
3 January 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Story of Film: An Odyssey 'The Golden Age of World Cinema' (2011)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

The third, and so far best entry in the series starts off talking about how Hollywood was the #1 goal for so many people and it was the greatest business of its type. While this was going on, overseas various foreign directors were turning out some of the greatest films in history. These include THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, METROPOLIS as well as films from the likes of Ozu, Lubitch and Bunuel. Unlike the first two episodes, this one here pretty much doesn't jump around and instead it tells a pretty straight story of these foreign pioneers and the various things they did to break away from the Hollywood mode and actually deliver some of the greatest films ever made. We get clips from the various films but we also learn about what the directors did in their careers and how their influences were felt across the globe and especially in Hollywood. The German Expressionism is looked at closely as well is the type of comedy one could get away with overseas whereas in Hollywood you had some moral police. The shorts of Luis Bunuel also get some nice attention to various details in them.
