“Breathtaking...the best of all serial-killer movies.”—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Lang’s gripping account of a police manhunt remains one of the cinema’s most profound visions of crime and its impact on society. Peter Lorre delivers an unforgettable performance as the child-murderer caught between the machinery of the law and the machinations of the criminal underworld. In German with English subtitles. DCP digital. (MR)
