Plenty of direction and as much photography. There doesn't appear to be a miss or skip either.

The sheer sophistication of Sternberg's visuals makes nearly all current releases look old-fashioned.

If there are moments when Mr. Jannings holds the same expression and pose too long, you are rewarded for the most part with a brilliant performance in which there is a wealth of imagination.

Sternberg's direction makes this second only to The Docks of New York as the most accomplished of his silent films.
