Amazing shots from silent movies
All these shots are from F.W. Murnau's Faust, 1926. This movie is one of the finest examples of art direction and composition in cinematic history. Disney's Night on Bald Mountain sequence in Fantasia borrowed heavily from Faust. I strongly recommend seeing this if you can get it on dvd. Murnau also directed Nosferatu and Sunrise. Sunrise is maybe the most brilliant movie ever filmed. You have to see it if you love movies.
