German Expressionism in Film

Where the Horror Film Began: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

This is one of those keystone films.  If you haven't seen it, you ought--it is cinematic summation of German Expressionistic art and a very, very fine film in its own right.  Moreover, in retrospect, it says a great deal about the temperature of Germany at the time and gives some peculiar insight into the state of the nation between the wars.
