Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
This 1923 family tragedy from the director of Napoleon dates badly today: the restored four-and-a-half-hour print is often agonizing to sit through.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Gance took this moldy, soapy story about a railroad man who adopts a young orphan girl and turned into a sprawling, half-mad, 4-1/2 hour masterpiece.
Gance's command of cinematic vocabulary is simply breathtaking...required viewing for anyone who cares about the development of movies as a form of communication.
| Original Score: 9/10
[Abel Gance] is a master conductor who plays scenes like symphonies of feelings...
A tragic melodrama of tortured love.
| Original Score: B+
