Made in 1931, at the dawn of the sound era, “M” is a true spine-chiller. Beside it, almost all other movies about serial killers seem like child’s play. To explain the film’s central position, we need only note that Lang was the moviemaker from whom Alfred Hitchcock learned suspense and Luis Bunuel learned how to shock.
“M” was Lang’s first sound picture, and he was wise to use dialogue so sparingly. Many early talkies felt they had to talk all the time, but Lang allows his camera to prowl through the streets and dives, providing a rat’s-eye view. One of the film’s most spectacular shots is utterly silent, as the captured killer is dragged into a basement to be confronted by the city’s assembled criminals, and the camera shows their faces: hard, cold, closed, implacable.
Now being held in our ground floor storefront, the Decades Dance Parties return every second Friday. All profits go to the Lodge.
