      There's no denying that you're just one of the crowd

      I watched this movie last night. I cried when I saw it after two o'clock in the evening, and didn't fall asleep for a long time.

      This is a silent black-and-white film with a realistic theme. It tells the story of a man whose heart is higher than the sky, but in the end he can only be a clown who has been laughed at by himself. Although filmed in a Hollywood environment, the performance of the cold society and the numb crowd is not restrained at all.

      At least in my...

      Mary never left

      Mary never left

      That 340-foot little house

      After Christmas

      she said goodbye to john

      to the damn door

      Uneven floors are like stepping on a sewing machine


      when my daughter died

      she is also dizzy

      Cradle hand swing

      Folding bed, folding dining table, folding bowl rack

      like john's cheap trick

      Three quarters, always see only two

      The mouse squeaked when the coin was turned

      Passing through Brother Mary's...

      Lessons learned from the crowd in this film

      The two most important points are:

      1. Don’t get married easily

      2. Don't quit your job easily after getting married

      1. How to pursue the opposite sex

      1. Speak sweet words to her and sweet words to her to make her feel that you are a romantic person;

      2. Say some arrogant words from time to time to make her think that you are a thoughtful person;

      3. Take her to the amusement park, to the beach, to the waterfall,...

      I am a member of the crowd,

      Write a review of this 100-year-old film on the last day of 2019. In the film, the dizzying high pavilion, the hustle and bustle of the crowd, and I sat in the front row of the double-decker bus, were all what I saw every day. I am about to enter the third year of this city of seven million people, and it is still unfamiliar and familiar. This year, just like Johney in the film, my Mary and I lived in the castle, took her to see the sunrise on the fields, picnics and posed for pictures;...

      Hollywood-style realism, a small family epic with rich details, the plot is still advanced by accident or conventional, but it still said a very cruel thing. As the final happy scene stretches to the vast sea of ​​people, the seemingly happy ending can hardly conceal the delicate...

      Compared with lonesome of the same year, the relationship between individuals and groups in the city is more critically discussed. The image of the city is one-sided but more tragic, without the complex and European atmosphere in Fejos' films. The film's micro-cameras and ceiling-camera movement show extraordinary ambition, just like John's American dream at the beginning, and behind the ambition is a group of homogenous working machines, neat and cold. Although this film emphasizes this...

    Evaluation action

    In the first half of the twentieth century, MGM was known for producing high-concept movies starring top stars, but in The Crowd, none of those elements were seen. Talented director Kim Vidor did not use the big-name actors with box-office appeal, but let his wife, Polderman, and a man from the crowd, James Mulvey, play the film's hero and heroine. Several other important characters in the film were also found in the same way. This...
