sunrise is the most compelling silent film i've ever seen. it's spare, clean, simple, and short on the period affectations that often make silent films comic and dated to modern audiences.
This was an amazing experience at the Triple Door, and the orchestration they chose to go with Sunrise was perfect.
Did anyone see Lambchop perform their score to Sunrise a few years back? I saw the premiere of it at the SF Int'l Film Fest, and while I didn't think they came up with the definitive score (the songs with lyrics didn't quite work), some of the musical interludes they came up with worked really well. Based on your description it sounds like the Album Leaf went in a different direction.
Good call, Constant. That is one superior film.
