SUNRISE (1927)


SUNRISE is an amazing silent film from FW MURNAU released in 1927, in it a young farmer is tempted by a 'city woman' to murder his young wife so they can sell the farm and run off together, the visuals and cinematography in this movie are stunning even by today's standards.

I often recommend silent films to many of my art students to help them see visually-- and this one is at the top of the list.
