Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari

Robert Wiene Germany, 1920

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

So fascinating to study the actors & famous expressionist sets in the Murnau Foundation's perfect 2014 restoration (4K). Oddly, the film itself leaves me cold. Am at a bit of a loss regarding its reception... || Seen w. a collectively composed score, played by a chamber orchestra from the Freiburg Conservatory of Music. Competent, but didn't knock my socks off. Must see a copy w. Zorn's organ music from 2014 someday!
