  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Crown of Thorns

    Fairly crude production values: painted backdrops for sets, and it has neither cinema "magic" nor the Expressionist style of Wiene's CALIGARI; Palestinian Jews made to look like stereotypical European Jews while Jesus and his disciples look neither Palestinian nor Jewish. Nonetheless, quite engaging. With Asta Neilson as Mary Magdalene and Henny Porten as Mary (pictured in screenshot). 3.6
