Faust (1926)

High-Def Digest
21 December 2015
  • Summary: This 1926 version of 'Faust' is one of the cinematic greats in history. A ton of filmmakers drew inspiration from this movie as well as its director F.W. Murnau. There was no movie at the time that was as expensive as this was or made like this one.

Rock! Shock! Pop!
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Murnau’s adaptation of Faust is almost two straight hours of genuinely horrifying imagery wrapped up in a classic tale of good and evil. Kino’s Blu-ray offers fans a very nice upgrade over their past DVD editions and the movie itself is a gorgeous cinematic nightmare that has lost none of its...

  • Conclusion: "Faust" is an enormous production, crashing from side to side with ferocity, but still tending to softer moments involving the human characters as they struggle with their unique challenges and persecution.

  • Conclusion: This was Murnau's last film in Germany. After filming Faust , Murnau left Ufa and went to Hollywood. This artistic yet attention-grabbing film was a fine ending to his German period. The special effects were awe inspiring for the time, and the morality play was interesting.

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Aleksandr Sokurov’s demented, gunky take on the Faust legend tumbles from one scene into the next with loping, loopy energy. People gnash their teeth and bite each other’s elbows and wrists; everyone is always falling down, jumping up, tripping over each other.

12 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Dissecting a cadaver at the start of Aleksandr Sokurov's methodically balmy Faust , the impoverished and miserable Doctor Heinrich Faust (Johannes Zeiler) yanks a heart from the chest cavity like a leg of lamb.

Review: ‘Faust’

Variety
8 September 2011
  • Summary: Forget Marlowe, Goethe, Gounod and Murnau, or rather, lay them aside, since the idiosyncratic helmer Alexander Sokurov adds his own spin on the classic legend.

Faust

11 March 2014
  • Summary: Don’t expect the classic Faust of old – this is a twisted, surreal, sometimes disturbing and often demented twist on the tale of the man who sold his soul. Visually arresting, powerfully acted arthouse drama from the director of Russian Ark that’s not for all tastes – but if you go with your mind...
