See it if you love well filmed old black and white silent movies with glorious new original music. Could be a great Pop Rally MoMA
Don't see it if you can't imagine what it would have been like to see this movie when it came out.
See it if you like Murnau's Faust or have never seen it. This is just a movie with live music (drums and electric guitar). The movie hasn't aged
Don't see it if The venue is rather unfortunate for the screening. All they got is a rather tiny roll down screen and don't really bother deeming the lights
See it if you love live music, you love silent film, you love originality, you're seeking a respite from the madness, you are smart.
Don't see it if you want a big action-summer blockbuster or you're opposed to incredibly rich orchestrations played by master musicians.
See it if you want to be taken by spectacular film and exquisitely performed music. Absorbing experience! Fantastic musicianship in this show.
Don't see it if you don't like silent films.
See it if you like moody, ambient, beautiful music bringing out a timeless silent movie, connected to how original viewers would have felt.
Don't see it if silent movies with modern music don't thrill you.
See it if You love great music, old film adaptation. I felt that I walked out differently than when I came in. The best show I've seen so far.
