"Choosing F.W. Murnau's best film and choosing the best silent film ever made are essentially one and the same. I would have to go with Faust over his other masterpieces and the best of the French films of the 1920s."
"Dreyer's masterpiece is amazing. One would think that a silent film in which nearly the entire plot revolves around people making speeches would be a bore fest...but think again! The editing and cinemetography (and lack of makeup), combined with Falconetti and others' acting make this a visual experience to last a lifetime. An absolute REQUIREMENT for any would-be future film-makers!"
"This is still one creepy, scary movie, 75 years after its production! Be sure and get a good restored version, such as Kino's, with the 20+ restored minutes and restored tinting that Murnau had used."
"Many silent film afficianados pick this as the greatest silent film ever ... and on certain days I am one of them. With ONE dialogue card in the entire film, F.W. Murnau lets his camera and the incomparable Emil Jannings tell the story without dialogue. Simply a must-see film for any film buff or potential film-maker!"
