DAS CABINET DES DR. CALIGARI

DAS CABINET DES DR. CALIGARI
by Robert Wiene
Country: Germany
Year: 1920
Duration: 76'


Is he an evil illusionist and hypnotist or a benevolent doctor? Ambiguous Dr. Caligari wanders among crooked streets and houses while his Creature, the diaphanous sleepwalker Cesare, commits his crimes. Everything is twisted, jagged, and disturbing in the ingenious sets (by Hermann Warm) of the iconic movie of German Expressionism: starring Werner Krauss and Conrad Veidt, a journey into the nightmare that heralded Nazi horror and influenced all the cinema of the fantastic that was to come.
