Orlacs Hände

Robert Wiene Germany, 1924

Scout Tafoya's rating of the film The Hands of Orlac

A perfect compliment to Caligari. Whereas in his earlier film Wiene transformed studio walls into a hall of mirrors, here he commands the real world and turns it into an alienating but all-too-real horrorshow. A work of art.
