The Vampires (in case you are stupid)
Wow, that was exhausting. In case you did not know, this movie is a total of 440 minutes long. And it is silent. My theory is that even if you are totally into the movie's plot and characters you cannot continue to enjoy yourself for that long of a time period. That is not to say this movie was not interesting, but it was a little hard to swallow.
This movie is about a gang of criminals called Les Vampires who pretty much go around looking hot in black leotards (definitely my outfit of choice if I was working against the law). There is also this "hottie" named Irma Vep who I think kind of looks like a wild animal. The movie (s?!?) is divided into ten parts which have everything from secret panels to executions. A must watch even if you do it over several months.
RATING: ***-- (it is the length that makes it hard to watch)
The aforementioned Irma Vep, played by Musidora (who you know is glamorous because she has one name) was considered quite the dish, and was made famous by this film.
Musidora was an acrobat who did her own stunts.
The next movie on the list is over three hours long. Yay...
