  • francisca bacon's rating of the film The Woman He Scorned

    That moment when the newly 'saved'n'wed Pola Negri starts her rural feminity blend-in by removing dramatic makeup in front of the mirror was akin to glimpsing a kohled Nina Hagen cross over to prudent L. Gish, cutting across Barnet's shawled Ms. Pitunova, face clearing up, but never courting flat-out au naturel, just as the film never transgresses settled histrionics toward meta/schizoid hints. So fragrant of Delluc!
