Storm Over Asia (1928)
Not Rated
  Pudovkin intelligently explores the legitimate case for an independent Central Asia casting stones at both the West's involvement in the region and organized religion.....amazing cinematography, editing, and direction
Arsenal (1929)
Not Rated
  1928 per IMDB. Dovzhenko rewards the informed (he assumes you know all aspects of the Ukraine's involvement in the Russian Revolution) viewer with a wonderful film making his case for a Bolshevik-aligned Ukraine. Brilliant editing and use of folklore.
The Passion of Joan of Arc (Criterion Collection) (1928)
Not Rated
  Dreyer's masterpiece with a legendary performance by Maria Falconetti. Some of the best art direction of the silent period. Only complaint is that the use of close-ups is so prevalent as to (slightly) take away some of the power of the film by the end.
The Man Who Laughs (1927)
  Paul Leni directs his most famous film and Conrad Veidt gives an almost perfect performance in this film which is much more of a jab at upper-crust establishment than a horror film.....adapted from Victor Hugo's novel
Tempest (1928)
Not Rated
  Surprisingly good film with fine performances by the great German actress Camilla Horn and John Barrymore. Cinematography by the legendary Charles Rosher.
Sadie Thompson (1928)
  Gloria Swanson and Lionel Barrymore. The ending has been lost for all eternity, but the DVD does a fairly good job of trying to piece together what it would have been. Perhaps Swanson's best performance.
Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928)
  Buster Keaton's second best (but still excellent) perfomance of 1928, following the (yet to be released to DVD) The Cameraman
