Revisitations #11: The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920)

Cesare (Conrad Veidt) carrries Jane (Lil Dagover) across the town’s rooftops in the chase sequence

Kirsty wanted to talk about one of her true loves, Robert Wiene’s 1920 Expressionist masterpiece, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, and Dan was only too happy to indulge.  Although he drew the line at pronouncing the film’s German title (‘Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari’) because he was chicken about pronouncing two syllables wrong.

The restored Blu-Ray version of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari to which Dan and Kirsty frequently refer is this release.

Kirsty’s essay about Caligari and Hannbal is here.
