Cave of the Spider Women ★★★

SIFF 2015

Restoration a bit haphazard at times (there are title cards for "End of Act 4" and "End of Act 7" but not for any other Acts) but for the most part it looks pretty spectacular.

Think this is the first Chinese silent film I've seen. It's not exceptional by late silent standards, but it doesn't look primitive either. Fits right in, wuxia and Expressionism are a natural fit.
