Movie Reviews

“[It] conquered time and gravity with a freedom that was startling to its first audiences. To see it today is to be astonished by the boldness of its visual experimentation (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Roger Ebert: rogerebert.com

“‘Sunrise’ is a distinguished contribution to the screen (…) In its artistry, dramatic power and graphic suggestion it goes a long way toward realizing the promise of this foreign director in his former works” Variety 

“Imaginative and surprisingly moving for a silent art movie (…) Rating: ???? (out of 5)” Kim Newman: Empire
