Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari

Robert Wiene Germany, 1920

Andrew's rating of the film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

The sets and visual atmosphere are extraordinary, and fit very nicely with contemporary artistic movements in other fields. The theatrical style and expressiveness also add hugely to this movie. I'd be interested in others' views about this film's influence on Orson Welles, thinking specifically of the Trial and Othello - having seen both of those films recently it seems to me there was a stylistic progression.
