I've just discovered NEOMUET
, a collection of seven silent films celebrating and revitalizing that classic art. Ranging from serious to whimsical to gently parodic, the films are all wonderful, but if you just want a taste I would particularly recommend Richard III
, La Boxe
, and especially Horror
. The site and all of the films are available in both French and English.

Neomuet reminded me that I should also point you to Nicholas Gurewich's (of The Perry Bible Fellowship
, and SEW
, which I mentioned earlier
) excellent silent film The Liars
, a surreal, stop-motion silent film about a quarrelling couple and their trip to the moon. It's simply stunning -- visually, conceptually, everything. Go see!
