  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    Un classique du cinéma que Lang réalisa de mains de maître et qui reste incontournable avec son mythique personnage devenu une icone du crime ... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Mert Kaya's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    such great movie but TOO LONG and bores modern viewer, sad to say I suddenly slept like 10 mins in some part and needed to replay.

  3. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    It's nice to watch this carefully restored 2001 version of Lang's important film, although I would prefer a better, more imaginative (and maybe more modern) score. Aljoscha Zimmermann tries to catch the atmosphere of the 1920's - there is a lot influence of Kurt Weill's music - but repeats himself consistently, so the music gets boring.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    There's a saying about poker: if you haven't identified the sucker, then you're the sucker. Lots of suckers in this decadent period in German history. This Mabuse guy is pretty darn crafty with the mind control and eyes of a vampire. The law is after him, but he manages to stay one step ahead.

  6. Histioteuthis's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    The best Mabuse movie probably and definitely my favorite, it's so fun <3

  7. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    There may have been other films of this kind before, but serious organized crime in cinema begins with Dr. Mabuse.

  8. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    Though I can't say I was ever bored, I do think the film could easily shave off 30 minutes from its running time. On the other hand, the high points more than make up for this slight criticism with special mention to the first encounter between Mabuse and the detective as my favorite scene. I also can't help but compare the way the henchmen describe and fear Mabuse to the way all religious radicalism speak.

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    Epic in storytelling and scope. Little bit long!

  10. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    ..2016 TMC chef d'œuvre ! .....

  11. Dignan's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    I hate a film about a sinister, telepathic psychologist? Perhaps Lang gets lost in his own self-importance.

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    No hay duda que "El doctor Mabuse" es un buen filme, sin embargo, y sin ánimos de desvalorarla, discrepo para cuando la catalogan como la gran obra expresionista. Lang es maestro de dicha etapa, muy a pesar, y salvo por la casa del conde y las afueras del escondite del villano, no hay más voluptuosidad expresionista. Prefiero nombrarla como un clásico del cine negro, ahora si recordamos a "Fantomas", está por debajo.

  13. Luis Pires's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    The two female characters are amazing.

  14. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    The kind of denizen story that starts with "You have taken cocaine again, Spoerri!" hahah Simply amazing and worth the whole length!

  15. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    The first part is pretty much front-to-back brilliant; the second part gets bogged down in flat-footed procedural business, though it rallies near the end.

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    2000 restoration. Essential cinema representing one of Lang's most vital contributions to film history. Even at 4 1/2 hours this film never ceases to thrill with nary a frame wasted. Rudolf Klein-Rogge as Mabuse is one of the all time great adversaries here facing Bernhard Goetzke's Inspector Von Wenck. Fantastic story with a film lanquage that stood at the top of its form for the time period. Great silent.

  17. Michael Goetz's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    While and impressive and sprawling crime epic, it says half as much at twice the length of M, Lang's overwhelming masterpiece. The are many dead spots and repetitions in Lang's four-hour narrative, the the contrast with his hard, gem-like American work shows how the move to Hollywood was a boon to at least one European visionary. Lang thrived within limits; this loose, baggy monster needed more of them.

  18. Ethan's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    A thrilling and epic masterwork from the great Fritz Lang. This movie has influenced countless films and is still as fresh today as it was upon its release.

  19. Barry Lindon's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

  20. El Biffo's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    Mabuse, master of disguises, manipulates the stock market, cheats at cards, controls people's minds, and prints up enough bogus currency to devalue the Deutsche Mark, all at once! "Spiel ist spiel!" The Murnau Foundation restoration of this important classic is a treat for silent film fans, with dialogue restored by accessing censor's records. "A taste of decadence fuels the soul!"

  21. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    Timeless classic. Even better than Der Müde Tod. Definitely director's best.

  22. William Low's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler

    A 4 ++ hours of brilliant early cinema thriller that is very worth watching.

  23. velapoma's rating of the film Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler
