The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

When Phil said about the film being silent, as well as black and white; I thought that i would struggle to keep my eyes open.. But WOW! I was shocked at how powerful this film was. The facial expressions were amazing and they really made the film come to life. I've seen other silent movies before, such as that of Charlie Chaplain and Laurel and Hardy. But they didnt appeal to me as much as this film.. Also the backgrounds and environments that are used are very magical looking.. Because there are no colors in the film, your imagination has to come into play.. Even though the film is quite dark, i still felt that there should be a lot of color involved.. I would defiantly like to add some of this style into my work...
