Translation

M (Germany, 1931)

Directed by: Fritz Lang. Every time I see one of these classic movies I haven’t seen, it’s super embarrassing to come here on my blog and admit to everyone that I haven’t seen it. 450 more words

METROPOLIS (1927) - Location as Character

METROPOLIS ( 1927)

Director: Fritz Lang

Screenplay: Thea von Harbou

Finally, I got around to sticking on my Metropolis Blu Ray remastered for the 2010 version of the film including an extra 25 minutes of found footage which, I believe, makes this the most complete version of the film currently available. 514 more words

Film Noir Friday: The Big Heat (1953)

It stands to reason that Fritz Lang’s 1953 film noir The Big Heat opens with a shot of a .38 revolver lying on a table. The image is unassuming, yet it reveals the path violence will weave through the motion picture. 639 more words

M - "Inspirational and unforgettable filmmaking, a reference point for thrillers and psychological horrors today..."

In the media storm involving Rolf Harris and Jimmy Saville, it seems to be the relevant moment to rerelease the incredible thriller M. An unforgettable tale of a child-killer, Hans – labelled by the letter ‘M’ – preys on children using balloons and sweets. 468 more words
