“Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans” (1927)

I first watched this movie, quite by accident, perhaps 15 years ago. It was about two in the morning when I started, and I couldn’t stop watching it. It is a very old black & white film, and is experimental in some ways. I was surprised by how drawn I was to it – the story, the characters, the special effects, and especially the photography. It had a powerful effect on me. I felt at the time that it was one of the very best movies I had ever seen, and I still feel that way.
