1921 - The Phantom Carriage

1921 - The Phantom Carriage

Our third episode is the first to take us out of Hollywood. Salient Swedish filmmaker Victor Sjӧstrӧm’s timeless movie about regret and redemption is dark, haunting, yet somehow hopeful in its theme and landmark in its technique. Topics of discussion include the astonishing use of multiple exposure by cinematographer Julius Jaenzon, Sjӧstrӧm’s wonderful (self-directed) performance, and the lasting impact of the film on the likes of Ingmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick.

Also John comes up with a great name for a Mortal Kombat finishing move.
