"I will never find the way to say how much I love American close-ups. Point blank. A head suddenly appears on screen and drama, now face to face, seems to address me personally and swells with an extraordinary intensity. I am hypnotized. Now the tragedy is anatomical...Waiting for the moment when 1,000 meters of intrigue converge in a muscular denouement satisfies me more than the rest of the film." — Jean Epstein (1921)
