Film Discussion – Fritz Lang`s first serial killer film “M”
April 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join our discussion of Fritz Lang’s first serial killer film from Weimar, Germany.
When the police in a German city are unable to catch a child-murderer, other criminals join in the manhunt!
M (German: M – Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder), is a German thriller film, released in 1931, that was noted for its use of groundbreaking lighting techniques and offscreen sound to maximize a sense of horror. M was German director Fritz Lang`s first sound film, and it featured Peter Lorre in his in his breakthrough role as Hans Beckert, a serial killer of children. An early example of a procedural drama.
In his harrowing masterwork M, Fritz Lang merges trenchant social commentary with chilling suspense, creating a panorama of private madness and public hysteria that to this day remains the blueprint for the psychological thriller.
