| Fantastic film, but the version I saw on DVD is presented as though it was produced by the misguided folks who married inappropriate modern music to the film.
Fantastic film for anyone interested in film history, Dante's Divine Comedy, or genre movies. The pure ambition of setting this story to film and the impressive staging of the circles of hell overcome the lack of sophisticated cinematic language to which we are accustomed. This is the era before the closeup, remember. What is absolutely unpardonable, however, is the presumptuous manner in which the company that put out the DVD has left their clumsy fingerprints all over this film and somehow decided that it is theirs. It is embarrassing, infuriating and obscene. These folks should be put in movie jail for plastering their names all over it in the artificial credit sequence and marrying the modern and inappropriate Tangerine Dream music to the picture - not as an audio option, mind you, but as the only option! This is the problem with public domain films - there is no one there to protect the film from the likes of these folks. The ridiculous way in which the credits are appended (tons of credits for each Tangerine Dream musician down to whoever provided the donuts during their sessions, but only a bare few credits for the 150 people who actually made this fantastic film in 1911. And no attempt to provide any information about the film, its production, the artists and technicians who made it, or what kind of music it was originally screened with. This is not as disgusting as the Queen version of Metropolis, but not far from it. There is a circle of hell in L'Inferno for film 'remix' people like these.
