THE THOUSAND EYES OF DR. MABUSE
Thursday, May 16
Imported from Germany especially for this screening!
(1960) Lang’s last film is a tour-de-force return to his echt criminal mastermind Mabuse, who finds, this time out, that two-way mirrors work both ways. In a film that spawned myriad sequels by inferior directors, Lang created the technohotel Luxor, where TV cameras hide in every corner. “A breathless, complex and awesome piece of cinema meditating on the imbrication of looking and power.” – Phil Hardy. DCP imported especially for this series. Original subtitles created for this screening by Bruce Goldstein and Elspeth Carroll. Approx. 103 min.
Part of Fritz Lang’s Dr. Mabuse Trilogy.
