The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1928), or Passion Plays And Silent Screams (Part 1)

5 05 2009

I’ve been sitting here all evening trying to find something to say about this film, and all I can say is, “Wow”. Seriously; I’ve been trying to come up with words to describe how I feel about this movie to no avail. It’s an intensely powerful movie about the life of Joan of Arc, particularly her trial and execution. It’s a silent film that speaks volumes, a wonderful picture that I honestly cannot add a whole lot to right now. Check in with me for the rest of the week as I slowly add my two cents on this film. I have something to say about it, I just think it’s going to perculate for a while. Consider this introduction part one of a daily serialized discourse on the film. Check up with me through the rest of the week to hear more about my thoughts on The Passion of Joan of Arc!

It’s so weird that a movie from so long ago has such power. It hit me like a fucking freight train. I’m serious!!! On a side note, fche626, thanks for coming by so often and commenting. You really make my day. Same to Goregirl and cello85, if you’re out there. You folks are my own personal heroes out in cyberspace!
