(1927) dir F.W. Murnau w/George O’Brien, Janet Gaynor, Margarett Livingston [94 min]
One of the most beautiful and influential of all silent films, F.W. Murnau’s SUNRISE is an amazing, expressionistic masterpiece. The film tells the story of a man (O’Brien) tempted by a woman from the big city (Livingston) to leave his wife (Gaynor). Fate intervenes, however, and the love of the married couple is rekindled during an outing in the city. It’s a simple tale, but Murnau’s breathtaking, bravura filmmaking makes it so much more.
