Burlesque Suicide, No. 2

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 28, 2015

Here’s another close-up. It’s quite well executed, featuring some very well distributed changes, or gradations. Is that an intentional mis-framing? Probably not—the gunshot takes place just above the frame. Intentional or not, it’s still interesting.

On the other hand, as before and too often with these early Edisons, Burlesque Suicide, No. 2 strikes me as an unkind, jerky movie.
