You’re gonna look at this list after the cut and go “girl you watched how many movies???” and I’ll be like “so many movies!” Mostly silent movies because it’s that time of year:Pordenone Silent Film Festival! This year I watched a little over 200 films at Pordenone Silent counting films I’d seen before (with exactly 200 of them were new-to-me!). I also peppered in a few highly anticipated 2017 releases and a few more silents on FilmStruck (because they’re addicting!) As always, you can see all the films I saw in October, plus a breakdown of years (spoiler alert: about a third of them were from the 1910s!), after the cut.
Hassert Seide: Here we have the iron maiden. Otherwise known as the German Statue of Liberty.
Richard Myles: I’m surprised to hear a German say that.
Hassert Seide: I’m an Austrian.
Richard Myles: Isn’t that very much the same thing nowadays?
Hassert Seide: Is that the English view?
Frances Myles: We’re not English. We’re American.
