Dir. F. W. Murnau | Germany | 1926 | 114 min
F.W. Murnau's colossal adaptation of Goethe’s Faust ranks alongside Fritz Lang’s Metropolis as the greatest achievement of the German silent cinema. Struggling with his faith amidst a devastating plague, the titular alchemist impersonated by Gösta Ekman is offered the power to cure and the gift of youth by the diabolical Mephisto (a stunning Emil Jannings) ... in exchange for his soul.
