most amazing film: The Passion of Joan of Arc

Just watched this on the tumblr of Kate Beaton, the best comic artist out. (Ch-check her site Hark! A Vagrant.)

“The Passion of Joan of Arc, from 1928, is available online and translated into English here. It is simply amazing. Maria Falconetti as Joan gives what is widely regarded as one of the best performances on film, ever.”

Nota Bene: Even if you don’t rate silent films, at the very least listen to the choral-orchestral soundtrack that’s been paired with it, just for a little bit.
