Audience Reviews for Diary of a Lost Girl

This is the only silent movie I have ever sat through. I didn't think I would enjoy it, but I did. Louise Brooks was compelling as an actress and the story was a little raunchier than I would have expected from that era also.

First of all, it's strange that Flixster says this movie is from 1981, it's really from 1929! Anyway, I highly recommend this movie, it's a has a great story, it's not dated at all, and it's very engaging. I really liked this movie.
