in about 100 words or less
I will soon be revisiting a number of films in a new feature entitled: 100 Favourites. My intention is to re-watch my Top 100 list, and provide a critical synopsis of each film in about 1000 words or less. I have decided to begin with Robert Wiene’s classic psychological horror film: Das Kabinett Des Doktor Caligari (1919). These longer essays will provide a more complete description of the film, and will attempt to place them in some historical context, as well as describe why they have found a place among my 100 favourite films. In keeping with my original intention for this blog, I’m doing this to further my own knowledge about film, to better acquaint myself with my favourite films, and simply because I think it will be a lot of fun (Klaus Ming April 2016).
