Conclusion: Criterion has once more done a bang-up job restoring a cinema classic. Fritz Lang's 'M' is a genuine masterpiece. The Blu-ray looks terrific, and has a number of excellent and informative bonus features. Very highly recommended.
Summary: An intensely personal docu about politics and a film about silence that's full of words, Nicolas Prividera's intellectually rewarding "M" teems with contradictions, which are its very meaning.
Summary: Flirtations with pornography, prostitution and violence spell out the dark underbelly of Japanese society, but narrative details are left unconfirmed in Ryuichi Hiroki's intriguing "M." Pic is skedded for local release in January and is likely to duplicate Hiroki's previous festival success abroad.
