Dale Wittig's rating of the film Fantômas

René Navarre stars as the master of disguise and plans within plans, Fantômas, under the masterful direction of Louis Feuillade, adapted from the popular novels of Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre, establishing the model for so many later super criminals of film, though none of those to follow would have so strong or lasting effect on cinema and our collective unconscious.
