F&C1924: Greed

Like… he was there?! On the set!? Man.

Hey, this one doesn’t have an overly jaunty soundtrack… It’s more like a… er… slightly modernist jazzist thing…

Who am I to criticise this classic? I don’t know anything about nothing. But I still think this film sucked. And I doubt the original eight hour version was any better.

There were scenes I liked, though. Like the final birdy scene, for instance. I kinda teared up. But… I’m a patient guy… but for long stretches I didn’t find anything compelling here. Sorree!

Greed. Erich von Stroheim. 1924.
