I think I liked Kameradschaft slightly more than Diary of a Lost Girl and Joyless Street, but the last two are kind of a blur. I really want to see Westfront 1918.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Sara: Good-bye, father Isak. Can't you see you're the one I love? Today, tomorrow and forever.
Isak Borg: I'll keep that in mind.

White Hell of Pitz Palu (1929)
* * * - Good
I don't know if this is the first mountain climbing adventure movie, but it's the earliest one I've seen. This type of story normally bores me because it's always the same checklist of obstacles every time, but being made so long ago there's the extra question of how difficult was it to get this footage. There's also a lot of artistry, especially when filming melting icicles. (The scene where the woman lays under one while it melts across her hand and face is pure poetry.) There are also good psychological reasons for taking the risk. They're not just climbing "cause it's there." The back half suffers from too much attention paid to the arduous process, but this is clearly an influence on similar movies like Cliffhanger and tension-filled adventure like The Descent.
