The Fall of the House of Usher 1928

The Fall of the House of Usher has many interpretations but for a strange reason I find this version from 1928 THE BEST of all of them. Jean Epstein is narrating this famous tale written by Edgar Allan Poe and withstands from all of the versions I have seen.
Lucas is the photographer and has some incredible shots I loved the way the hands talk over the movie, really wise I guess part of that Dadaism and Surrealism popular over that time and that was sadly used and horribly driven by the directors of the 60s and 70s in my country.
This is the best movie I have seen in the last 4 months so far!

Have a great day!
