The murderer “Boss” Huller – after having spent ten years in prison – breaks his silence to tell the warden his story.
Truly amazing. The viennese restoration is stunning; the music score by The tiger lillies is weird but interesting. Sure, it basically makes the charachters speak (for real) and it's somewhat annoying. Still, great job.
Cinematography by Karl Freund.
Ultraformalist protonoir. If all the rest of the films disappeared (god forbid) we'd have inspiration enough in this one to start rebuilding.
