Summary:
Nosferatu, Mabuse, and Caligari: icons of German cinema who haunted the silver screen, phantoms and doppelgängers from a terrible realm who represented the fears and desires of an era experiencing anarchistic freedom. This film essay by critic Peter Buchka explores the German cinema of the 1920s, ranging from the disquieting images of Fritz Lang's Metropolis to the castrating sexuality of Marlene Dietrich in Die Blaue Engel.
