M 1981
Rated
Through the shadowy concrete streets of Berlin - on the eye of Hitler's last putsch - runs a fat, perspiring little man in the grip of horrifying compulsion. He murders small children. Hunting him are the city's outraged citizenry, the police, and an even more merciless foe: the criminal underworld, which has vowed he will not live out the night when he falls into their hands. As the desperate little man, Peter Lorre - who modeled his role after the real-life Dusseldorf Strangler - creates an unforgettable archetype of psycho pathology: brutal, terrified, childlike, swinging wildly between remorse and sadism, and finally, screaming for his life, before a kangaroo court of thieves and murderers that seems an eerie prototype of the Nazi regime; "I can't help myself! I can't stop!" "M" is Fritz Lang's finest achievement, and a matchless classic of pure, paranoid suspense.
