  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Acts 2 & 3 are a trial, but after that it has something of the wrenching yet vaguely farcical feel of 'Requiem For a Dream' in that it becomes a melodramatic descent into death and despair... but then the tawdriness of it all is elevated by a suddenly beautiful last 10 minutes that is moving in unexpected, confusing ways. I think one's enjoyment of the film is pretty contingent upon how much one <3 Louise Brooks.

  2. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    This seemed deeper on a recent re-viewing-- madness, violence hover in the air, and eventually settle on a victim.

  3. Dignan's rating of the film Pandora's Box

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Oh Louise. Can you hop in a time machine and marry me plz?

  5. francine's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Compelled to include this as my first pick. The classic that first drew me to the enticing Brooksie. Not surprising that it aligns with my fascination with Jack the Ripper. A delirious film.

  8. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    I bet Lars von Trier loves this film. It has a feminist discourse but-not-in-the-way-you-would-expect. Oh, and the 8th act is really beautiful. I'll work in a detailed analysis if I feel into it.

  11. pepoire's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    COUNTESS GESCHWITZ. Let me mention her first, because not many do, though her character is frankly way more interesting than that of Lulu. Of course this is a great, well-made film, and story complaints belong mostly with Wedekind, but still, it ranks as one of the most regressive silents I've seen in a long time. Funnily, Jessner's more symbolic and minimal approach to the same story made Erdgeist easier to stomach.

  13. Rocco's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    There's nothing to say, really. You just get it or you don't.

    One of the year's highlights.

  16. josé neves's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Cinematography by Gunther Krampf.

  17. Joe Morton's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    All Pandora, and no box!! This movie presents it's self as a morality tale. But there is no moral to be found, except that Louise Brooks is beautiful, and who cares about anything else...

  18. Álvaro Vargas Tapia's rating of the film Pandora's Box

  19. El Biffo's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Louise Brooks is perfect as a slutty Jewish artiste with a pure heart. I love how Pabst establishes her Jewishness in the first scene, and then never makes an issue of it again in the film. One of the finest films by one of the greatest stars of the silent era.

  20. Victoria L.'s rating of the film Pandora's Box

    If you feel a sudden urge to quit during the first half, don't you dare do so.

  21. - Caltiki -'s rating of the film Pandora's Box

  22. sapta's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    I want to get destroyed by Lulu

  23. Gylfi's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    Daring, sexy, funny, sad, exciting masterpiece. Louise Brooks is unforgettable as Lulu. I loved every minute of it!

  24. Shelley's rating of the film Pandora's Box

    I gave this 3 3/4/5 stars. it was a little too long, not much dialogue, and very drawn out. however, the orchestral theme was absolutely beautiful/entrancing, as was Lulu's beautiful face. the plot was very suspenseful and creepy but it didn't do it for me. there were a few too many time gaps. it was a beautiful film, interesting, and important to see but its not one of my favorites.
