Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari

Robert Wiene Germany, 1920

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

fascinating and really compelling. the set design was very gothic and reminded me of early tim burton as well as charles laughton's night of the hunter. the twists were excellent too. visually a real treat, not to mention that it has a great deal of plot and gets through it with such style. i really was impressed this piece.
