Pandora’s Box / Die Buchse der Pandora (1929) 2 x DVD9 Criterion Collection
It's all about a girl named Lulu who nobody can resist. She's a dancer who seduces everyone to get exactly what she wants. Trouble is, Lulu shakes society to its core by using sex as a weapon, and the consequences are terrible. Like the mythical figure alluded to in the title, the girl seems to unleash hell anytime someone falls for her. A father and son are ruined, show business moguls topple over in disgrace, her first husband finds himself shot, and his son flees the country as a chronic gambler. Ultimately Lulu herself attempts a fatal trick with an infamous serial killer on Christmas Eve.
