Film #30 of the Halloween 31
I first watched this movie when I was first exploring early silent films, and it was one of my favorites. I have always been intrigued by its story and visual style, so I decided that it had to be one of the final films of my Halloween 31.
This is truly a great German Expressionistic silent film. The cinematography is amazing, with only a few scenes being poorly lit. The production design is great, creating an atmospheric, nightmare-like world. The visual style is just that impressive. It is replicated by so many filmmakers, like Tim Burton.
The story is also very unique. You can see its influence in many modern films. It really revolutionized the twist ending. The first time that I saw the film, I had no idea what was coming, and it was brilliant.
So overall, I absolutely love "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari". It's pretty easily accessible, so I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it before.
