Of all Fritz Lang’s creations, none have been more innovative or influential than M, the film that launched German cinema into the sound era with stunning sophistication and mesmerising artistry. A spate of child killings has stricken a terrified Berlin. Peter Lorre gives a legendary performance as the murderer Hans Beckert, who soon finds himself chased by all levels of society.
From cinema’s first serial killer hunt, Lang pulls back to encompass social tapestry, police procedural, and underworld conspiracies in an astonishingly multi-faceted and level-headed look at a deeply incendiary topic. One of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time, M remains as fresh and startling 80 years on.

M does not feel like a film from 1931. A pre-cursor to noir cinema Lang thrills his audience like no other in one of the early sound movies. A classic film in every sense and a must have in this stunning remastered blu ray.

Love these Masters of Cinema releases. Too bad they don't have as wide a catalogue as Criterion, but what they have, is quite worth buying, and collecting. "M" is also one of the best films they have, but I do get the urge not to stop with this one and buy films that I just like or haven't seen, just because of the supplement materials, design of the cases and overall quality. Could get addicted with this stuff.
