Nosferatu, in a church, with a live, improvised score, played on the church organ;
It’s been a long time since I saw the film, and like most people, I remembered the iconic shots; a bit in the castle, a bit on the ship, and the bit at the end, with the shadows and the sunrise.
Well, this restored version is 90 minutes and there’s a lot more in there besides those.
For a film that’s almost 100 years old it holds up well, but the audience (and its was a good turnout) was a bit restless at times.
I don’t want to diminish the importance of the movie; it adapted the book far more faithfully than many films that came after it (which often worked from the play, rather than the novel) and created some iconic images and lore of vampirism that have stayed with us ever since, but for a modern audience it’s an academic curiosity more than an entertainment in it’s own right.
But worth the time and the money, without a doubt.
