It Could Have Been Worse/The Could Have Been Insurance Salesmen
14 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

As I've said in the past, Melies has this thing for Satan and Hell in general. Poor old Faust made a deal with the devil for his soul. So the day of reckoning comes and he has to pay the piper. One of the devils gives him a tour of his new digs. There are ballerinas left over from the last two features. There are men in white tidies running through flames. More dancing and finally the devil has had enough. A very strange and unsatisfying feature.
