Mabuse is the dark hero of Weimar cinema. Full of charisma, sardonic charm and nasty ideas, he is the wicked genious of crime –a German Fantomas. Fritz Lang shot four Mabuse films, including his very last film in 1960. Other directors tried as well, but never reached Lang’s superb ability and social-pathological depth. This double-feature is fast, hypnotic and prophetic: a futurist crime thriller and action movie with a criminal as hero. Mabuse is wearing dozens of masks and manipulating the stock market with fear and dirty tricks: any similarities to actual persons or events are “merely coincidental and the product of a feverish imagination.”
