One of the great silent films, GW Pabst’s Pandora’s Box is renowned for its sensational storyline, sparkling Weimar-period setting and the legendary, lead performance from its iconic star Louise Brooks. Following the rise and fall of Lulu (Brooks), a spirited but innocent showgirl whose sheer sexual magnetism wreaks havoc on the lives of men and women alike, the film was controversial in its day, then underappreciated for decades. Pandora’s Box now stands as an incredibly modern movie and few stars of any era dazzle as bright as Louise Brooks.
New 2K DCP of the 2009 restoration of Munich Film Museum’s definitive cut.
Live, improvised piano accompaniment by Jonny Best
PANDORA’S BOX is rated PG. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
