Top 10: Silent Films

I don't watch many silent films, and when I do I often have trouble connecting with them, so this is obviously a very personal list and not meant to be an objective portrayal of early cinema in any way.

Only feature films (no A Trip to the Moon) and films made before the invention of sound (no City Lights).
