Louise Brooks embodies the "flapper" spirit of her Lost Generation in this sexually charged and erotic silent melodrama ahead of its time in its depiction of the divide between men and the feminine psyche. It tragically ends in the Depression setting winter slums of Soho during Christmas time.
so grateful Pandora's Box finally released on Criterion. Beautiful Louise Brooks in her finest role. Everyone that Lulu meets become smitten by her beauty and free spirit, wanting to possess her in order capture that which they can't have. Sad that her voice was not accepted in "soundies", so her career ended with the silent era.
