DAS CABINET DES DR.CALIGARI (1920)

This was one of the earliest horror movies and depicted a world like the dream of an insane person.

UN CHIEN ANDALOU (1929)

Probably the best known surrealist avant garde movie, co-created by none other than Salvador Dalí. He wanted it to piss everyone off, and was annoyed that people seemed to like it.

GREED (1924)

A movie that has gone down in cinema legend as a partially lost masterpiece, which I today found more interesting than entertaining.

THE BROADWAY MELODY (1929)

The first of our forgotten best picture winners was such an early sound movie that it is hard to watch, even if it is considered one of the very first movie musicals.

LA PASSION DE JEANNE D’ARC (1928)

Renée Jeanne Falconetti gives perhaps the greatest of all movie performances in this legendary silent film that feels like “an historical document from an era where cinema did not exist.”

SUNRISE: A SONG OF TWO HUMANS (1927)

Perhaps the artistic apotheosis of silent movies, just before sound came in and swept them away.
