30-Second Review: Pandora's Box

Top Star  Louise Brooks     Date 1929      Category  Suspense Drama

The Story
Lulu’s anything a man desires, but she belongs to no one.

The Verdict
Ms. Brooks, you make sex complex. A damn fine piece of art.

Best Scene
His wedding night is the last night of Dr. Schön’s life. Alcohol, and one encounter too many with Lulu’s party guests, convince him the marriage is a mad pursuit. Alone in their bedroom, he forces a gun into her hands, telling her to kill herself before she drives him to murder. Their bodies press the gun between them, and as Lulu shifts, it is Schön who is shot.
