Fritz Lang's masterpiece of claustrophobic paranoia on Blu-ray

The Great Owl, blu-ray.com
19 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The world can be a scary place, whether you're a child afraid of being abducted, a criminal afraid of being captured, or just a normal everyday person who is unnerved by the mob mentality of crowds and by the obtrusiveness of surveillance. Fritz Lang's 1931 movie, M, was created long before the threat of internet predators, before the ubiquitous presence of traffic cameras, and before insurance companies and employers started to screen people based on credit scores, but...

"M"

DukeOfPrunes, blu-ray.com
12 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Le cultissime "M le Maudit" de Fritz Lang est disponible depuis quelques mois en import allemand. Il ne me semble pas utile de revenir ici sur l'importance de cette œuvre au sein du cinéma mondial - même si le chroniqueur du test n'a pas daigné lui donner la note maximale. En revanche, il est important de saluer l'effort fourni par TLEFilms : car cette édition BR est absolument fabuleuse. Le travail de restauration est d'une qualité exceptionnelle.

Superb

  • Excerpt: Ja, genau so muss es sein, und es geht ja doch! "M - Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder" von Fritz Lang wurde nun Bild-für-Bild restauriert (sowie auch der Ton) in dem unter anderem fehlende Bildteile wieder eingefügt wurden. Das Bild sieht nun wirklich sauber und scharf aus. An einigen Stellen hat man fast den Eindruck, dass die Szenen gestern gedreht wurden. Es sind zwei Mono-Ton Fassungen enthalten. Die 2001 Restaurierung und eine neue von 2011.

One of the truly essental Blu-Ray releases

dbdb, blu-ray.com
20 October 2011
  • Excerpt: This is by far the best film Fritz Lang ever made. Lang's mastery of all elements of filmmaking support a superb story and script here (while, in my opinion, the story and script for 'Metropolis' are not even 2nd-rate, however wonderful Lang's direction may be in that film). The film elemenrs from 1930/31 have inherent limitations, but I doubt the film can look better than it does here. Wow! I am also pleased with the commentary track and the other extra features.

German NOIR classic!!!

srivatsava, blu-ray.com
13 September 2011
  • Excerpt: I feel very honoured to write the first review of the German Film-Noir classic "M(1931). Considering the age of the film, the way it was presented in terms of the concept and the suspense is amazing. Peter Lorre steals the entire show with his perfect caricatures and innocence that has to be enacted by a child abductor who is affected psychologically.

A 1931 classic that is still relevant today

zoodermin, blu-ray.com
15 August 2011
  • Excerpt: It's difficult to review a film like M. Fritz Lang masterpiece about social paranoia and society's moral codes offer difficult question where there are no easy answers. When a small city is terrorized by a child murderer, all police efforts are directed to find the culprit with no success. People are demanding results and the police is monitoring everything and everyone in a desperate atempt to find the criminal.

Insanley Good! Remarkable Performances!

  • Excerpt: What a flim, What a film. This movie was insanely good, and filled with amazing acting. From the very beginning to the very argumentative ending my eyes didnt blink not once. Is crazy how a film made in 1931 could have such a big impact in 2010! Not only is this film PERFECT in every aspect it also set the path for many films after it. A true CLASSIC and worth Multiple viewings.

A stunning special edition for a stunning film

tiggertai, blu-ray.com
21 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Every time I watch M, I find it more powerful, complex and exilharating than the previous viewing. No film has ever been more visually inventive, no script more steeped in irony, and no cast's performances more consistently perfect. In my viewing of the new Criterion blu-ray, I paid extra attention to Lohman and the Safecracker, both played with utter conviction and perfect nuance.

Amazing Blu Ray

26 March 2010
  • Excerpt: For an 80 year old classic this blu ray is amazing - I just cannot imagine a better print than this. Once again Masters of Cinema have hit the jackpot and with a print this good one can enjoy the sheer mastery of the film making which even by todays standards makes u sit up and take note.
