As the Oscars approach, and having personally started to dive into the films of Buster Keaton, I absolutely adored Dolby’s love letter to the magic of cinema. Created by Academy Award winner Moonbot Studios, and reviving their beloved character Morris Lessmore as the lead, the film follows two street performers who dream of bringing their “Picture and Sound Show” to life. Their dreams soon become a reality when a magical organ takes them on a cinematic adventure. Featuring wonderful visuals and stunning sound design, Silent will melt the hearts of hardcore cinephiles and average filmgoers alike. Since Dolby Laboratories is behind the short, do not be surprised to see this film playing in front of most coming attractions for years to come. It is an instant classic.
