It’s influence and striking visual style are undeniable but I find it remarkable how well the narrative holds up even 102 years on. It’s really gripping! The whole thing has such an eerie, nightmarish vibe.
I watched the film on the Eureka! Masters of Cinema blu ray and the film looks absolutely stunning in that presentation. There are other inferior transfers available online and on Amazon Prime so I can’t recommend enough seeking out a really good restoration if you’re going to watch it for the first time. It makes a huge difference.
