Director Bio

Fritz Lang

Fritz Lang (1890–1976) was an Austrian-German-American filmmaker. One of the best-known émigrés from Germany's school of Expressionism, he was dubbed the "Master of Darkness" by the BFI. His most famous films include the groundbreaking futuristic Metropolis (1927) and the also influential M (1931), a film noir precursor that he made before he moved to the United States.

Body

Fritz Lang’s magnificently moody psychological thriller about a German serial killer remains one of the greatest crime films ever made. Released in 1931, and later banned by the Nazis, the film is one third silent and the remainder with sound, and features a mesmerising performance by Peter Lorre as a child killer. The murderer evades capture by police and is eventually identified after organized criminals, with the aid of the beggars association, track him down. A powerful and intense classic.
