Sunrise (1927)

“Like Citizen Kane, Sunrise is one of those movies that introduce viewers to the notion of film as art. Sunrise is less a silent picture than a pre-talkie, existing in a strange netherworld between sound and silence.The erotic charge of the Man’s two relationships remains startling today in its directness. In more ways than one, Sunrise triumphs as a masterwork of thought and emotion rendered in terms of visual music, where light and darkness sing in relation to countless polarities: day and night, fire and water, sky and earth, city and country, man and woman, thought and deed, good and evil, nature and culture.”
