Diary of a Lost Girl

G.W. Pabst's 1929 follow-up to his notorious Pandora's Box, again with the American starlet Louise Brooks, though this time as sexual victim rather than predator. The daughter of a pharmacist, she is seduced by a shop assistant and launched on a series of humiliations, which include bearing a baby out of wedlock, a term in a reformatory, working in a brothel, and a marriage to a drooling aristocrat. The heavy moralism makes it much less provocative than its famous predecessor; nonetheless, the film was heavily censored around the world, though it's since been restored to an approximation of its original form. With Fritz Rasp, Josef Rovensky, and Sybille Schmitz, who was Fassbinder's model for Veronika Voss. 116 min.
