A 1921 film by Fritz Lang. It was a very good silent film. The reconstruction and restoration of the film seems to have been very well done. This is one of the better films from the era that I’ve seen. The effects were very ambitious and surprisingly well done. I also appreciated the use of the color tints to indicate different locations, times of day, and effects like red for fire. The title cards were very well done too, different scenes take place in East Asia and the Middle East and they edited the German script to resemble the languages of those regions which was a nice touch. For a silent
The effects and editing make this a stand out for me.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
