It’s Not Nice, It’s Art!

In the film version of The Threepenny Opera, Pabst managed to accomplish what Brecht could not: a true reconciliation between the satiric jubilance of the original stage play and the politically driven cynicism of Brecht’s revision.

Louise Brooks at 100: Interview with Peter Cowie

"One learned to take with a pinch of salt some of her assertions about people from the silent period. Sometimes it wasn't just her memory failing, it was a liberal attempt to build history in her own image." PopMatters talks to Peter Cowie, author of Louise Brooks: Lulu Forever.

German Expressionism Collection

We think of Expressionism, as practiced in the theatre and film of Germany and other European countries during the early 1900s, as a way of distorting the plastic elements -- Culture's extension of Nature's pathetic fallacy, where instead of trees and clouds reflecting our moods, it's the furniture and stairways.
