Chinatown vs. Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans



on 11/18/2010

Sunrise is a must see; one of the most heartfelt films ever made. That said, I still like Chinatown more. You know what happens to nosy fellas? They lose their noses!

Both of these films are in my Top 10 of all time, and both only get better on repeat viewings, but my pick goes for Sunrise, which while only 4 spots ahead of Chinatown for me, is the better film, with more dreamy visuals than any other film I've seen, and some of the most extraordinary scenes of any film I've seen. Sure, Chinatown has that too, but I think Sunrise outnumbers Chinatown in both regards. It's a close call, but Sunrise gets the victory in the end!
