Pandora's Box, 1929 - ★★★½

When thinking about silent films it's too easy to focus on the comedies or horrors and forget about the drama. It's also easy to think that these were innocent times but Pandora's Box throws out all kinds of debauchery. It's a shame that the film is so long and the first part in particular really drags but part two is a lot more enjoyable.

Screened as part of the Yorkshire Silent Film Festival with a brilliant live score by Jonathan Best.
