(Fritz Lang) At a busy intersection, all the cars start up but one. Could Rudolf Klein-Rogge’s Mabuse, soon to die in an asylum while compulsively churning out crime plans, still be spinning his spider web, even after...? Lang’s last German film. Approx. 122 min. 35mm.
“A nightmare vision of a modern world gone mad, of the effect of terror on society, a final tribute to the Expressionistic German cinema, an early example of the unique effect of film sound, and a powerful detective thriller, The Testament of Dr. Mabuse remains one of Fritz Lang’s most complex films.”
– Tom Gunning, author of The Films of Fritz Lang
“A hallucinating and horrifying story, depicted with great power and the extraordinary beauty of photography that Lang has led his admirers to expect.”
– The New York Times
