Carl Theodor Dreyer is probably the most important figure in film. Everything influential, emotional, profound, painful, and intense, can be traced back to his work, as he was the first guy to do everything, and the first guy to accomplish things that film hadn't accomplished before.

The Passion of Joan of Arc

This treasure, monument, and cornerstone of silent film and film in general, The Passion of Joan of Arc, is possibly the purest and most honest work of recorded theater ever produced. This is one of those very rare things that has the potential to touch you on a very deep level. It is also one of the most important historical documents in this medium, serving the noble purpose of portrayal of a 550-year-old document.
