    Need recommendation for vintage movies

    The music video for "Stand Inside Your Love" by Smashing Pumpkins is my favorite one. And I think there are some old movies with similar visual. And I also look for really old movies with more avant garde visual.

    And some of the earliest B&W blockbusters, too.

    What's vintage about that video? The corsets?

    You're kind of looking for German Expressionist cinema of the 1920's and earlier really.

    The Cabinet of Dr Caligari

    Der Golem

    Nosferatu

    Metropolis

    ...are a few examples. Also movies such as 'M', and American Noir cinema such as 'Stranger on the Third Floor'.

    Edit: Thinking about it, the Dali dream sequence from 'Spellbound' fits the bill too, although it's Surrealist. I'm sure there are lots of others...

    Another one in that neighborhood would be Paul Wegener's "A Student of Prague"

    I've got a really off the wall silent version of The Fall of the House of Usher that I think is actually from the United States. Maybe you can find info on that one by googling around a bit. Well yeah, they have it on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3E-sOFUzO8
