Holy Crap!! Werner Krauss is in this??
I can never watch Dr. Caligari the same way again...
Gee golly, those shifty-eyed bearded folks sure are conniving and sinister! I hope somebody does something about them!
I hope somebody does something so just and well remembered, that all future generations will embrace that policy, so that the future may not ever be stolen from the rightful. 88
Oh, and I think that last scene may very well be the most depressing sequence ever set to film. I've heard people speculate that Hitler and the SS would have tried to have kept the Holocaust a secret had they won WW2, but seeing the way they're prodding the audience here, I'm not so sure.
I don't what is depressing about a criminal receiving just punishment.
Translation is a bit spotty and seems to be missing a reel at the end, but a visually beautiful film with a vicious, evil message. Say what you will about the Nazis, they had some amazing cinematographers.
This is the kind of independent, foreign film you don't see from the big Hollywood studios, where it's all about crude humor and sex.
