Greed (Les rapaces)

Description
Thus, McTeague must die in the middle of the desert, cuffed to the dead Marcus with the gold by his side. As Norris's novel was a protest against the elaborate fluff that was popular reading during the end of the 19th century, Greed was a protest against the pretentiousness and glamour that was part and parcel of Hollywood in the '20s. Nevertheless, it is a stunning visual work, and the overall sordidness of the film has a dreamy, rather nightmarish aura.
