No Score Yet Man Of The Sea (L'homme Du Large) (1920) Jacques Catelain is said to have given his best performance in this picture: it is arresting. The story is told pleasantly in successive tablaux. - Close Up EDIT

97% Man With a Movie Camera (1929) The work of Vertoff is no longer legendary. We have seen it, others have seen it. Everybody must fight till they do see it! - Close Up EDIT

No Score Yet Odinnadtsatyy (The Eleventh Year) (1928) It is grand propaganda. We are quite impartial but only a stone could remain unmoved. The machinery and men working in harmony for something which they believe to be better. - Close Up EDIT

No Score Yet Fräulein Else (Miss Else) (1929) The book conveyed the climax of each moment, this film could have done it by re-grouping of material, by flashing back and breaking up. - Close Up EDIT

No Score Yet Seduction (Erotikon) (1929) The seduction scene is astonishingly well done. Big- heads; severed noses, mouths, eyes. We are all fond of chocolates but we cannot eat them because they make us sick, but Mr. Machaty uses these chocolate-box close-ups so that they really become erotic. - Close Up EDIT
