DIE 1000 AUGEN DES DR. MABUSE /THE THOUSAND EYES OF DR. MABUSE – THE MASTERS OF CINEMA SERIES (12) 1960 GERMANY LANG, FRITZ BLU RAY ONLY £19.99
Dr. Mabuse resurfacing in the Cold War era, linked to a new methodology of murder and mayhem. Seances, assassinations, and Nazi-engineered surveillance tech—all abound in Lang’s paranoid, and ultimate, filmic labyrinth.
One of the great and cherished “last films” in the history of cinema, Die 1000 Augen des Dr. Mabuse provides a stylistic glimpse into the 1960s works on such subjects as sex-crime, youth-culture, and LSD that Lang would unfortunately never come to realise. Nonetheless, Lang’s final film remains an explosive, and definitive, closing statement.
