Famous for the *helluva* finale monologue, and the famed “kangaroo court” scene.
I wanted to say that I’m no academics, but I kinda am.
However, I agree.
Poster I’ve been eyeing for this movie: https://needledesign.bigcartel.com/product/m-1931-noirvember-ap
if anyone wants to skip to the end or otherwise remind themselves of when Peter Lorre announced to the world that he was goddamn brilliant – [here’s the finale monologue.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rt2xQpjyTzg)
Supposedly based on The Vampire of Dusseldorf, Peter Kürten, although Fritz Lang denied it.
That Kevin McCallister is a real sonofabitch
Everybody needs to watch this at least once.
I think of Westley Allan Dodd. A child killer who requested death and lamented his wasted life.
This is one of the few films I own that was made before 1960. I don’t like the acting style of older films. It’s mostly corny to me. But M is diamond hard in its presentation. In a way that wasn’t really normal for decades.
Lang was legendary in his cruelty towards his actors, especially in this film. It was Peter Lorre who was thrown down the stairs, and he was forced to be chucked down the stairs over a dozen times before Lang was happy with the take. Twenty years later Lang asked Lorre to work with him again and Lorre refused.
It’s a me!
I guess I should watch this huh
Probably the most well-made film I’ve ever seen… The composition of scenes like Lorre’s shadow looming over the “Wanted” poster where the young girl was playing, the editing of the police and mafia meetings being so cleverly interleaved with one another to draw parallels between the groups, the smoothness of the transition sequences, the lively and vigorous performance of all the actors, the philosophical themes so passionately debated near the end – a splendid film in every way!
How do you feel about Man Bites Dog?
