100% The Man Who Laughs (1928) The superb German actor Conrad Veidt plays the pathetic protagonist, while Mary Philbin, whose most celebrated screen role was opposite another physically damaged hero in The Phantom of the Opera, is extremely touching as his beloved.‐ Radio Times

4/5 100% Cabiria (1914) The international success of this Italian spectacle, the longest and most expensive motion picture made up to that date, allowed DW Griffith to gain support for his large-scale projects.‐ Radio Times

3/5 95% Journey to Italy (Viaggio in Italia) (Strangers) (The Lonely Woman) (1954) If one accepts the narrative simplicity and that the journey is both physical and spiritual, the film offers many rewards.‐ Radio Times
