Entertainment Reviews:

Chicago Sun-Times - 08/03/1997
"...What a haunting film it is..."
Total Film - 11/01/2003
"...M is a dazzling film that, seven decades on, remains as innovative as it is unsettling..."
Premiere - 12/01/2003
"...The genius of M is that despite the movie's expanded sensorial universe, it's what you don't see or hear that makes this Berlin crime thriller so terrifying..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2003
"The film itself remains as potent as ever. What's really striking is the eerie pathos of Peter Lorre's performance."
Los Angeles Times - 04/09/2013
"Few films are gripping and effective 82 years after their original release, but this one surely is."

Plot Synopsis:

In Lang's chilling masterpiece about a serial child killer who terrorizes a German town, Lorre gives an unforgettable performance as the modern psychopath, Franz Becker, who attempts to attain the dignity of a tragic hero, despite his uncontrollable urge to kill. Often credited for starting both the serial killer and the police procedural film genres, M is also notable for its startling statement about the murderous nature which resides within human beings.
