I was very excited to come home last night and find Criterion's blu-ray upgrade waiting for me. I've had the Masters of Cinema hd release for a while but the movie just isn't the same without the Voices of Light soundtrack. Now, finally, there's no need to choose between picture quality and soundtrack.
As for the movie itself, it's more powerful every time I watch it. This is the greatest silent film ever made and deserves serious consideration for the greatest film of any sort. Maria Falconetti's performance is unlike anything you've ever seen. This is a perfect film
