...Pandora's Box (1929)

Pandora's Box is a classic, they-don't-make-them-like-that-anymore film that couples the luminous presence of Louise Brooks, the intelligent direction of Georg Wilhelm Pabst, and the artful cinematography of Günther Krampf with modern themes and a smart screenplay. For a silent film from 1929, you can't get better than this one. And, despite it's technical age, it feels younger than springtime.
