Pál Fejös United States, 1928

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Lonesome

The dialogue in Paul Fejos' semi-silent LONESOME may seem cheesy by today's standards, but this long unavailable early sound era triumph about two single working stiffs who find each other for one glorious night in New York, is a swooningly romantic masterpiece. From the gorgeous color elements to the early sound scenes retooled for audiences demanding sound, this experimental mix of styles hits the spot.
