Fritz Lang

Lang, Fritz: The Big Heat (1953). – Another fine film of Fritz Lang’s, with considerable visual commentary on the essential selfishness of human behaviour. Gloria Grahame is outstanding.

Lang, Fritz: Ministry of Fear (1944). Lauded in the film noir literature, but it is largely pedestrian and narratively insufficiently coherent. I watched it because I admire Lang’s expertise.

Lang, Fritz: The Return of Frank James (1940). – The masterful Lang directing Henry Fonda. And Denver’s Gene Tierney.
