From Caligari to Hitler
German cinema in the age of the massesDVD - 2018 | German
Using a montage of footage from the highest quality restorations, Suchsland illustrates Siegfried Kracauer's 1947 thesis that the rise of Nazism is anticipated in many themes found throughout Weimar cinema, while situating Kracauer in the philosophy and histories of the time. Looking at films like "Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler," "Metropolis," "The Golem," and many others, Suchsland tracks the concept of the charismatic villain bewitching the people.
