sdedalus will be watching Diary of a Lost Girl (Tagebuch einer Verlorenen, 1929) by Georg Wilhelm Pabst.
OK, it's been over a month and I still haven't thought of anything particularly interesting to say about this. I liked it and I'm very glad to have been dictated into watching it. Louise Brooks is really good and the story is more interesting than the other Pabst/Brooks collaboration, Pandora's Box
, with a nice sentimental reversal at the end that's completely counter to the other film's darkness. But I think Pandora's Box
is ultimately the more memorable, more iconic film and the one I'd be most likely to watch again.
