Note Originally released as a documentary film in 2014.
Based on the book "From Caligari to Hitler" by Siegfried Kracauer.
Summary Using a montage of footage from the highest quality restorations, Suchsland illustrates Siegfried Kracauer's 1947 thesis that the rise of Nazism is anticipated in many themes found throughout Weimar cinema, while situating Kracauer in the philosophy and histories of the time. Looking at films like "Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler," "Metropolis," "The Golem," and many others, Suchsland tracks the concept of the charismatic villain bewitching the people.
