About M (Germany, 1931)

A film of firsts: the first serial-killer movie, the celebrated director Fritz Lang’s first sound production—and the movie he personally prized above all his others. It marries the fanciful expressionist techniques of the filmmaker’s epic silents like Metropolis to a frighteningly realistic tale of a child-murdering psychopath. This politically charged classic reflected the German audiences’ adoration of the dawning Nazi party back on itself, and its enduring
lessons (for both cinema and society) are as much global as local.
