The 1,000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse ~ Resurrected Vision
An illustrated film lecture by
David Phelps

... It was the idea of a bullet that could pierce a body without leaving a trace that inspired him, Lang said. Once the embodiment of the times, his new Mabuse is wholly disembodied, an empty brand name, an image without a trace. But Lang’s hoariest film is also his closest to documentary—the end of a tradition, it looks forward to a new cinema only by turning back on itself as critique." – David Phelps
