The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
While I generally do not enjoy silent films, I actually like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I thought the film was wonderfully shot and I especially liked the tinting for different scenes. I thought it was clever to tint in blue to show the difference between night and day, I have never seen that before. The one thing I didn't like about how the film was shot was the fade out when changing scenes. I found this to be distracting and pulled me out of the movie. I also found the font difficult to read sometimes but overall the dialogue was captivating. I found the plot of this movie to be interesting because its not the typical "horror story" that is common in today's horror films.
