Faust (Music: Nauzea Orchestra)
Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau / Germany 1926 / 107 min. / DCP
Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau conceived the story of Mephistopheles, Faust and Gretchen as the culmination of his German career. In its exuberance, freedom, variability and paradox, we seem to follow a similarly inconsistent and captivating picture of expressionism as an entity that escapes conceptualization.
