Our identification with [Lorre] as a psychopath is so complete it's hard to believe that while appearing before Fritz Lang's cameras in the daytime, he was, at night, acting as a comedian in a farce. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Lang's movie is that rare thing, a nail-biting soul-searcher. While M steers clear of analyzing deviance, it is startling in its musings on which punishment fits an inhuman crime. Full Review
Philadelphia Inquirer

Rating: 5/5 -- Few films are gripping and effective 82 years after their original release, but this one surely is. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Apr 11, 2013
Rating: 4/4 -- Fritz Lang's acute use of objects, symbols, letters, and codes to decrypt a relatively simple narrative remains as perfect an example of pure cinema in the sound era as one is likely to find. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- It is a cousin to the early Hitchcock of The Lodger, and I have always found something even something faintly Ealingesque about its cynicism and satire. Full Review

A beautifully balanced melodrama, well worth space in any language. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Lang's razor-sharp dissection of crime and punishment never puts a foot wrong. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

In this haunting portrait of a diseased society, the police are unable to catch a child-murderer so other criminals join in the manhunt. Anxious to capture the elusive child killer Hans Beckert (Peter Lorre), police begin rounding up every criminal in town. The underworld leaders decide to take the heat off their activities by catching the murderer themselves. Once the locals identify Beckert, they mark him by chalking the letter M on his back.
