Fritz Lang

New on Video: ‘Diary of a Lost Girl’

In just two collaborations, the German director Georg Wilhelm Pabst and the Kansas-born Louise Brooks created a screen personality that left a permanent mark on the history of film.

New on Video: ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari’

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, as much as it now stands as a cinematic phenomenon and as one of the most astonishing visual releases of the silent era, was, nevertheless, something of an enigma even in its own time.

New on Video: ‘Hangmen Also Die’

With “M,” “Hangmen Also Die!” is a film Lang considered among his most important. Coming out in 1943, it also must have been frighteningly dramatic for contemporary audiences, and it remains a chilling and captivating window into the personalities and emotions of WW II’s victims, their struggles, their small victories, and the sweeping human toll of the whole era.

‘The Woman in the Window’ is another addition to the pile of Fritz Lang’s great American studio films

The Woman in the Window can be added to the catalogue of splendid American films Fritz Lang directed during his state side career. It incrementally raises the stakes in logical fashion, tightening tension’s noose on the protagonists and the viewer until…well, it would be unwise to reveal the outcome. While not as emotionally devastating as his next film Scarlet Street, The Woman in the Window is still a must see for Lang fans.
