Does anyone appreciate German Expressionism? Some movies are Nosferatu, Dr. Mabuse's series, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Metropolis, The Last Laugh, The Student of Prague, The Golem, Phantom.

You ain't gonna get much joy round these ends, my friend. But yeah, Cabinet of Dr Caligari is quite beautiful. Given the choice i'd take the ol' Italian Neo Realism but you can't fucking deny the breadth of the influence of German Expressionism. And in terms of like, the visuals of it as opposed to the story-telling aspect, GE wins hands down.

Only watched Nosferatu and Metropolis of the ones you mentioned.

One of my favourites is M, along with Pandoras Box. Louise Brooks was so beautiful back in the day. <3

I went through a whole German/Austrian expressionist phase when I was younger. No idea why.
