    The Blue Angel

    ★★★★½

    I've watched this some 35 years ago but only now was I able to clearly see the sheer power of it. Sternberg & Dietrich were match made in the cinematic heavens, to an extent that even Emil Jannings becomes a supporting player on their feast. An early talkie masterpiece.

    A Story of Children and Film

    As usual, Cousins imbues his personal vision on his documentaries thru interesting approaches. But any doc about children and film that doesn't mention Ponette, automatically loses a star here.

    P.S.: The freeze of Jean-Pierre Léaud at the end of The 400 Blows always haunts me.
