The Unholy Three is one of those films that catches fire from its combination of a great director who understands that visual style and great individual moments and details are important, an exciting and offbeat story, actors who thrive in their roles and have excellent chemistry with each other, a weirdness played seriously and straight-facedly while acknowledging moments of humor, a pace that builds in momentum and action without losing its way or forgetting its characters, a great opening scene that is both different from and a great introduction to what is to follow, and an indescribable yet palpable magic that only makes its presence felt in really good movies. It's also one of the most accessible silent movies I've seen, with a modern feel in its actors' movements and expressions and its economy of storytelling.
