GREED
von Stroheim | 1924 | US | 140m
*Accompaniment by Steve Sterner
“von Stoheim”
4:30 at Film Forum

“Erich von Stroheim’s 1924 silent classic is more famous for its original eight-hour version than for the cut that MGM carved out of it, [but] even in its butchered state this is one of Stroheim’s greatest… Greed remains one of the most modern of silent films, anticipating Citizen Kane in its deep-focus compositions and Jean Renoir in the emotional complexity of its tragic humanism. Essential viewing.”
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
