Definitely ahead of it's time! Some great cinematography and great acting from the central character!
Well paced, high stress thriller. It’s a fun mystery to unravel, 90 years old, but has modern sensibilities
I watched this movie with my dad as a child. I think this lead to me loving cinema and wanting to learn more from it.
Suspenseful for sure. It takes you on an emotional journey, to be sure
The opening scene is one of the best in cinematic history.
Way ahead of its time. Visually striking and well-presented. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
Caught me through its ride to the end, then it ended
Great German classic crime thriller, loosly based on the crimes of Kürten... Great ensemble and great storytelling!
Eons ahead of its time. An exceptionally styled and deliciously dark experience that sheds a light on a very real problem in postWW1 Germany
It still holds up as a compelling movie about criminality and justice. The endimg speech gets me every time.
