Fritz Lang's Dr Mabuse The Gambler (1922) features a super-villain that looks like he just stepped out the comic books. Dr Mabuse is a gambler, a hypnotist, a master of disguise, a criminal mastermind, What More Could You Want Out Of A Super-Villain??? This film is a crime narrative that plays as well today, as it did in 1922. It kept me engaged, and at the edge of all the way through the 4+ hours. In fact, I wish that it was even longer.
