Der letzte Mann

F.W. Murnau Germany, 1924

Hockley Cinema's rating of the film The Last Laugh

Murnau's parable delightfully shows that "it's not WHAT we are but WHO we are that counts". Lovingly restored and more innovative than one would think. Apparently this was the first ever film (??) to utilize the 'subjective camera', wherein we were able to see events through a character's eyes.
