  1. the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    "Dear Mr. Almighty, The Bearer is John Jones, an Artist." Nothing has changed in 100 years. The ending is the same as Gilliam's Brazil, and it can't be a coincidence.

  2. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    Cynical little short about "making it" in Hollywood, this US-Russian experimental pic has an interesting art-decco style, reminiscent of German silents, but with a more humorous tone (the 'actors' in the story flap their mouths like guppy fish when performing). The final scene in heaven is a beautiful piece of miniature modeling.

  3. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    Definitely not without charm. And, for what it's worth, no doubt still relevant. Any other praise would need to be qualified by the phrase "for it's time". 2.5

  4. Javier's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    Great music and acting.

  6. msmichel's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    Though derivative of 'Caligari' and 'Metropolis' this striking avant garde short stands as a testament to the incredible work of camera man Greg Toland. Surprisingly quite cynical for its time period.

  7. srubarth's rating of the film The Life and Death of 9413, a Hollywood Extra

    Wonderful silent short. Guy Madden does a fantastic homage to the genre, surely in part inspired by this film, in his short called "Heart of the World" (a six minute short produced for the 2000 Toronto Film Festival). You can watch the latter on YouTube. I love the pacing and the visual style of both films.
