I was scared by the witch in the fog and his wife. When she slithers out to get the poisoned wine and all you hear is the swish-swish of her kimono? Gave me chills!

"If..." is one of those films I've watched several times. I adore it - its as simple as that. I love the characters, the strange narrative structure, the music that Malcolm McDowell keeps playing again and again. I love the lot. I should also get a prize for most WTF! ending ever, though in today's society it all becomes nearly unbearably poignant.

"Pandora's Box" was truly deserving the title 'masterpiece'. Louise Brooks was a rare beauty, but what I loved most was the themes of the film, particularly in the last part when they are on the boat and the count wants to sell Lulu into slavery. Creepy, creepy. I'm planning on posting a short review on it actually, as I am with quite a lot of the films I've seen. Just the small task of finding the time. *sigh*
