raybolger: this post brings you 75 of the major films and the greats of the silent era of film, a medium often forgotten and unfortunately more than 70% of it estimated to be lost. So, grab your gal and go on a nice wholesome date to the picture show, and maybe we can keep silent films in memory.

To do justice to the figure of Kafka in its purity and its peculiar beauty one must never lose sight of one thing: it is the purity and beauty of a failure.
