    Perhaps the most under-rated of Fritz Lang's silent spectacles, this tale of master criminality has all the visceral thrill and visual atmospherics of one of Louis Feuillade's Fantomas serials.

    Many of the Metropolis alumni were reunited for the picture, with Karl Vollbrecht and Otto Hunte creating Expressionist sets which added menace to the dastardly deeds laid at the door of the Mabuse-like Rudolf Klein-Rogge by Lang and Thea von Harbou's breathless script. Lang abandons political allegory to place the emphasis firmly on escapism and his genius for the awe-inspiring set piece.
