  • José Neves's rating of the film A Modern Hero

    Extraordinary modern film: written in isolated autonomous subsequent scenes, with a rare representation of the women in classic North-American cinema - independently ladies of themselves - and a great freedom in narrative continuity - if we forget Sternberg - this single act in American cinema by Pabst is one of his great films, subverting the studio's formatted language to his own expressiveness .
