containing multitudes since 2004
What a discovery this film was, I got to see it at Cinefest in Syracuse a few years ago. Definitely a missing link between expressionism and noir, and I've heard rumours of a restoration/release on DVD (two musical acts were discussing their desire to perform scores for it on alt.movies.silent this week). All I knew of May was his Lang-penned adventure epic The Indian Tomb, but this is something else and deserving of wider exposure.
The Region 2 DVD is being released any day now (I already have this ordered!). Asphalt is a terrific movie, as is Joe May's Heimkehr/Homecoming.
I've never seen a Joe May movie I didn't think was at least excellent . . . . . . but then, I haven't seen some of those things he did for Monogram either.
