The Threepenny opera
Rated
Mesmerizing, beautifully atmospheric rendering of the most sensationally popular German play of its day. Brecht and Weill's acidulous updating of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera. It was a touch too atmospheric for Brecht; he successfully sued the producers for altering and prettying up his work. But in retrospect it remains the best adaptation of Threepenny on film, a milestone of the pre-Hitler era.
