Critic Reviews for 4 Devils
So naturally are the sound effects rendered -- applause, expressions of alarm and so on -- that complete illusion results.
You will love this new Murnau film. If it doesn't strike you as quite the arty photodrama Sunrise was, it will, nevertheless, thrill you more, and afford you the opportunity of seeing again the really unsurpassable Janet Gaynor.
Thrilling scenes of life in a European circus, fine acting on the part of Janet Gaynor and an excellent cast and some first-rate photography and camera work combine to make Four Devils... a photoplay worth seeing.
Made by F. W. Murnau, the imported director who was responsible for The Last Laugh and Sunrise, it is done in the most approved German manner with plenty of surprising camera shots taken from queer angles.
Murnau can only deal with mass emotions, and he is not psychologist enough to make of human symbols of humanity he seeks.
