When I'm in the mood I write brief thoughts on films in notebooks which then get transferred to my bag where they get forgotten. Well, I dug them out and I'm going to transcribe and tidy up those thoughts because I'm sure it'll be worth it...maybe.
The First Born (1928)
- Madeleine Carroll throwing and catching a ball of paper a couple of times
- the use of superimposed subtitles in the crowd scene
- the plunge down the lift shaft
- somebody naked in a bath
- the handheld camera
- the editing
All wasted in a film that was boring with unlikeable characters and a plot that I did not care about at all.
