The most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German expressionism, THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world. Director Robert Wiene and a team of designers crafted a nightmare realm in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor and a carnival sleepwalker perpetuate a series of murders in a small community.

I love this, what a classic. The set design and makeup is a great throwback also. Well worth viewing.
I love the tinting and color tones!
One of the true classics of the silent era. This film would be a good choice for a modern remake.
This is creative!
