BBL 2013-2014 | Watch a Silent Film


#9 WATCH A SILENT FILM

Why did I include this on my Bucket List?

I've never watched a silent film and I simply wanted the experience of watching one.  With today's incredible (but maybe a bit over the top) movie special effects, I couldn't imagine how the stories were told back in the day of silent films.  However, I wanted to find out.

Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?

I really wasn't sure what to expect, but I did think that I'd have a hard time following the story line without any dialog.  Surprisingly that wasn't the case at all.  The story was definitely simpler than most movie plots today, but I had no problem following along with exactly what was happening.  I even found myself laughing out loud at many parts of the movie.

The details...

Since I wasn't familiar with any silent films, I did a brief google search and found a list of the top 10 silent films ever made.  From there, I went down the list until I found one that the local library had and checked it out.  I ended up watching City Lights starring Charlie Chaplin.  It was actually quite good and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.  I definitely would watch more of his films if I ever get the opportunity!
