Pandora’s Box

Georg Wilhelm Pabst

Pandora’s Box
Directed by: Georg Wilhelm Pabst
(Criterion)
Louise Brooks became a star with her role as a showgirl whose promiscuity shatters the world around her. A dated concept? Perhaps. But Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s silent classic (restored in a comprehensive DVD package) finds desire competing with the threat of modernity.
