Faust (F.W. Murnau, 1926) -
Glad you watched it. I love Murnau and this is my favorite even more so than Sunrise
. I think what is so good about this movie is the imagery, the gothic presentation of the plague infested town is absolutely great. I agree that the plot, especially the middle part does not really hold up, I think it was an attempt to turn Faust into something commercial (look a love story!) still overall its a great film.
More people need to watch this.
