World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: FRITZ LANG

Fritz Lang's vision developed early, and has a consistency of design and a visual power that are unique in world cinema. His films' eerie lighting effects, evocative compositions, unrelenting suspense, and narrative economy incorporated Minimalist and Expressionist techniques to enlist viewers' imaginations in evoking horror and dread. A pioneer of the film noir genre of the 1940s, Lang had a deep infatuation with, as he put it, "cruelty, fear, horror, and death." What more could you want in a movie?
