Events on October 20, 2012
2 – 3:15 p.m.
With original musical score and accompaniment by Daniel Lloyd.
Visually rich and narratively complex, the German Expressionist film "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" is widely considered one of the greatest horror movies of the silent era. Told as a flashback by the protagonist Francis (Frederic Feher), the film relates a mysterious string of murders in the small German mountain village of Holstenwall, whose most famous residents are the creepy Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss) and the even creepier prophetic sleepwalker kept in his care (Conrad Veidt). "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" presents a suspenseful whodunnit, with a twist ending that will leave you breathless.
Directed by Robert Wiene, 1920, 78 mins., not rated, silent with English intertitles. On DVD.
