Pandora's Box (1929)

Pandora's Box (1929)
Pandora's Box, dir: Georg Wilhelm Pabst
I'm not sure how I feel about this film; I kept thinking that it was really quite good but that I was ready for it to be over. Strange.
I like the cabaret soundtrack on the Criterion edition, at least until the last bit with Jack the Ripper, where the repetition intended to cause suspense just struck me as monotonous instead.

... Right before that scene there's a good shot of (appropriately ominous) stairs.
