Samenvatting

Sensationally modern, G. W. Pabst’s lurid, controversial melodrama follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu (Louise Brooks), whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with.

Recensies

When Pabst frames the swan-like emergence of the reformatory escapee as the most dazzling of the brothel’s inmates—her boyish crop replaced by her iconic bob—he was surely forging an intertextual link with Pandora’s Box, proving that Louise/Lulu is ineffaceable as pure image—and as ineradicable and unsentimental as desire. No matter who was calling the shots, it was “the look” that prevailed.

Louise Brooks’s famous bobbed hairstyle precipitated her eternal inimitability… Pabst understood this, which is why when Brooks’s doomed flapper from Pandora’s Box flees a courtroom after a murder conviction, she cuts her hair to become almost unidentifiable—to be like other women, except perhaps for the curly-blond gal pal who longs for her affections… It’s an act of desperate self-preservation in a film wickedly chockablock with exciting displays of amorous exaltation and domination.
