    Great list, have not seen a good number of those in some time.

    Good to hear from you, Omar. I’m currently teaching 3 summer school classes (all of which meet twice a week) so you’re going to see a lot of “classics” on these lists. The one I’m most excited about out of this bunch though is COEUR FIDELE, an exquisite silent melodrama by Jean Epstein that contains some of the most rhapsodic passages I’ve ever seen in ANY movie. Not only that but the Eureka!/Masters of Cinema blu-ray is arguably the best presentation of any silent movie on home video ever!
