PHILIP GLASS AND AMERICAN SILENT FILM

Kino_kvadr

Harold Lloyd is one of the biggest stars from the silent fi lm era, so the experts say. If nothing else, many will have seen the famous image of the textiles salesman played by Lloyd hanging by the hands of a large clock high above the crowd of people and moving traffic. The image is from the 1923 comedy Safety last!, a truly funny movie if you are ready to watch forgetting that you are serious, grown-up persons. Admittedly, for those with height sickness the fi lm might be a horrifying thriller, not only a comedy. Before the film, Philip Glass’s Cello Concerto No. 2, based on the film score to Naqoyqatsi, the last part of the Qatsi trilogy, truly Glassian music.
