Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927)




A man's mistress suggests that he murder his wife so they can run away together. Unpredictable story is like a romantic comedy bookended by a film noir (long before the names for these genres were coined). Somehow, the different tones work together to create a moving portrait. Janet Gaynor's beautifully expressive face deserves much of the credit.
