Foolish Wives

Erich Von Stroheim, 1922. Under the tight direction of von Stroheim, the acting is subtle, specific, and thus very funny. The Austrian-born director brings a decidedly European feel to American film, and it’s a big leap from Griffith’s world. Satirical excellence in a vivid Monte Carlo.
