M, A City Searches for a Murderer
Thriller, noir, by Fritz Lang, Germany, 1931.
Fritz Lang's masterpiece, considered one of the founders of the noir genre that was successful in Hollywood in the 1940s, is inspired by the heinous crimes committed in Germany in the 1920s by Fritz Haarmann and Peter Kürten. The city is terrified of a child killer, and the police cannot find any trace. The criminal organizations have continuous problems with the raids of the police and decide to hunt down the monster on their own, managing to discover a clue: the monster whistles a macabre motive in approaching its victims.
Food for thought
If you want to be a painter you need talent, if you want to be an architect you need skills. If you want to be a criminal or a killer there is no entrance exam. Crimes and assassinations are sometimes just a reaction to the humiliation suffered in trying to create something. Repressed creativity becomes destructive, love becomes hate. We must allow the good in us to grow to avoid falling into the darkness of evil.
