  4. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film Roundhay Garden Scene

    "Before you a life is surging, a life deprived of words and shorn of the living spectrum of colors - the gray, soundless, the bleak and dismal life... it is terrifying to see, but it is the movement of shadows, only of shadows. (...) it speeds right at you - watch out! It seems as though it will plunge into the darkness in which you sit, turning you into a ripped sack full of lacerated flesh and (...)" - Maxim Gorky

    The earliest surviving film!

  7. El Biffo's rating of the film Roundhay Garden Scene

  18. Zachary Phillip Brailsford's rating of the film Roundhay Garden Scene

    Why did I favorite this and give it five stars? Because, dammit, it was shot first. It's not like something else wouldn't have been shot without it, but hey, what the hell, eh? Savvy
