    I love this movie. Rewatched for the first time in a long time with my nephew. After he suggested we went to see The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, I thought why not check out the movie that made Cage the action star he's been for 25 years.

    This is a grisly film and retains much of it's power still, 90 years after it was made. The use of the Grieg motife as a recurring theme the killer whistles worked eerily well. Peter Lorre launches his film career with a role for the ages, I wonder if he ever got over being considered creepy after this performance.

    Somehow I've watched over 2500 films without getting to one made by Fritz Lang before. This is a director I've known…
