In Murnau’s film, the city is terrifyingly dangerous, becoming safe only when the lovers imagine themselves elsewhere. In My Best Girl, the actors and the camera cross the road together, their movements perfectly timed to avoid the vehicles zipping past. The effect is a utopian image of the modern city as a perfectly balanced system, a place where humans and machines can thrive together.
