In this episode we will talk through all of the major contemporary silent films, or rather, the few there are:
- Silent Movie
- The Call of Cthulhu
- Brand Upon the Brain
- Dr Plonk
- La Antena
- The Artist
And ask the following questions:
1. Are silent films simply the result of [b]unfortunate technical limitations[/b], which the medium luckily overcame - or are they a [b]unique style with its own merits[/b].
