CHRIS VOGNAR introduces Fritz Lang's M at THE BIG MOVIE

 

Dallas Morning News Film Critic Chris Vognar introduces the 1931 Fritz Lang classic M this Tuesday night at THE BIG MOVIE presented by DALLAS VOICE.

A simple, haunting musical phrase whistled off-screen tells us that a young girl will be killed. "Who Is the Murderer?" pleads a nearby placard as serial killer Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre, Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon) closes in on little Elsie Beckmann. In this restored version of his harrowing masterwork, filmmaker Fritz Lang (Metropolis) merges trenchant social commentary with chilling suspense, creating a panorama of private madness and public hysteria that to this day remains the blueprint for the psychological thriller.
