Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari

Robert Wiene Germany, 1920

Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

It reminds me of the things I dream about while I'm asleep at night. This film really gives you that feeling of walking down an abandoned street at night where everything seems to be some kind of imposing threat. Visually, this is one of the most well-composed films I've seen, the art direction and lighting are out of this world. It hasn't aged a bit.
