SFJFF: Fritz Lang's M
The Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival presents
STARS IN THE DARKS: Fritz Lang's M
One of the finest examples of German Expressionist cinema, a style that influenced film noir, Fritz Lang’s film stars Peter Lorre in his first major movie role, the film in a tale of crime and punishment. M is Lang’s first talking picture, but it is punctuated with periods of silence to great effect. (Germany, 1931, 118m, new digital restoration)
