M Yönetmen Joseph Losey
Losey saw humanity for what it was: vile, afraid, painful, complicated. But he also saw that it was worth standing up for. M set the stage for a career spent probing the strangest, bleakest depths of the human spirit. And it’s time we brought it out from the shadows.

[Wayne’s] subtlety works and he comes off not only incredibly creepy and heavy breathing sexual but an effective cipher and just terrifying (he’s different than Lorre) who allows Losey’s spectacular supporting cast — Martin Gabel, Luther Adler, Norman Lloyd, Raymond Burr and Jim Backus — to work off and perhaps even through him by going larger (Luther Adler is especially strong here).

Less geometric trap than floating crap game, filtered through pale sunlight rather than engulfing shadows, this is as much a document about Los Angeles in the McCarthy years as Lang’s film was a snapshot of Weimar Berlin. It builds to a remarkable search of the Bradbury Building’s echoing, zigzagging innards, with Wayne dragged from a room full of disembodied mannequins to an impromptu tribunal in a cavernous garage.

İnsanlar ne diyor?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film M

    Losey's last Hollywood film before being blacklisted is a gem. More than a mere "remake", Ernest Laszlo's photography captures the horror and dread of a child murderer with perfectly framed shots. 1931 "M" stars Peter Lorre; here the star is old Los Angeles, and lovers of the City of Angels will relish in scenes of the iconic Bradbury Building, Bunker Hill neighborhood & funicular, and other lost/historic locales.

  • josé neves's rating of the film M

    4,5. While the original was a metaphor about Nazism, this remake is an acutely portrait of the intolerant period then lived to the fullest, the McCarthyism communism hunt, that led Losey to exile. A portrait cinematically exciting and energetic, with astonishing findings, such as the use of child eroticism and the final court at an underground car park, in one of the most impressive noire films of the decade.

  • T. J. Harman's rating of the film M

    Having not seen the original in a LONG time, I could get past comparisons (though a lot of it felt fresh even with the identical plots). I liked that the killer was more ordinary looking than Lorre. The grim view of the "mob rule" herd mentality of a community in 50s USA is interesting coming from a filmmaker who was a victim of McCarthyism. Sometimes simulating a story to another culture can be interesting.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film M

    Bien sûr cette version yankee du chef-d'oeuvre de Fritz Lang ne fera pas ombre à sa prestigieuse mouture originale, mais il faut reconnaître que cette réalisation rare présente indéniablement des qualités remarquables surtout par l'étonnante interprétation de David Wayne dans le rôle de Martin W Harrow, le psychopathe recherché et dans une moindre mesure, celle de Luther Adler en avocat alcoolique.

  • SpacePirate's rating of the film M

    Losey's last Hollywood film before being blacklisted, and given the mob rule mentality of the storyline, makes it rather ironic. Laszlo's cinematography is beautiful, and De Silva, Burr and others provide great work. The German film has Lorre as its star, here, LA is front and center. A nice noir photograph of the city at the time. Not just a mere remake. Great film. 4 stars

  • Charles Coleman's rating of the film M

    Good use of real locales, acting is fine but after a solid half hour or so, the movie follows the Lang M a bit too much without changing much or saying much at the end. Disappointing considering the promising start and wonderful look of the film.

  • Scott Lucas's rating of the film M

    Forgotten Hollywood remake of "M" from the front lines of MacCarthy's America. Also check out "The Black Vampire" (1953), an Argentinean re-working from the mother's point of view.
