    A psychologically-thrilling, exciting film from director Lang. The police & criminal underclass of a German city compete to capture child murderer, Lorre, who whistles "Hall of the Mountain King" as he approaches his victim. Lorre gives a harrowing performance as the killer, asking us to look into ouselves for psychosis problems that equal his character's. Social problems such as the press' coverage of the killings & vigilante actions make their way into the film; which has an equal amounts of wrought suspense. A haunting, unforgettable & amazing thriller. I give it a 5/5.

  • Fritz Lang's Masterpiece!

    I was blown away after watching M. The film has its slow and repetitive bits here and there, but its brilliant opening, terrific mystery and thrills, and outstanding ending is enough to rank this film as Lang's greatest achievement and one of the best thrillers in all of cinema. Lang gives some extraordinary camera work, with brilliant angles, terrific movement (shown in tight rooms, especially) and a riveting use of shadows to increase the suspense and horror. Peter Lorre gives his finest performance, giving a superb portrayal as the insane child murderer and showing off his real acting talent in his 'fake courtroom' speech, which is one of the greatest achievements in film!

  • One of the greatest

    I had no idea what to expect from this film, but in 20 seconds or less, you are literally thrown into it, as one is with the first undeniable page of a really good book. I felt almost a little queasy as I listened to what the children were chanting/singing as they played in the street in the first scene. From that point on, I was hooked, and I could not stop watching until this movie was over. Part of you wants to turn away from this film, but you know in your heart and mind that if you do, you will be missing something important: a top-notch, A+ movie that comes along once in a lifetime. The performace of Peter Lorre is such a rivoting one- so wonderfully yet sickeningly done. If you can stomach the subject matter, "M" is one of the best films you'll ever see.
