With the etching onto glass of a single word – “MABUSE” – Berlin reawakens into a nightmare. Fritz Lang’s electrifying The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse) is an astonishing film that puts image and sound into an hypnotic arrangement unlike anything seen or heard in the cinema before – or since. It’s been eleven years since the downfall of arch-criminal and master-of-disguise Dr. Mabuse (Rudolf Klein-Rogge), now sequestered in an asylum under the watchful eye of one Professor Baum (Oskar Beregi).
Mabuse now exists in a state of ‘catatonic graphomania’, his only action the irrepressible scribbling of blueprints that would realise a seemingly theoretical ‘Empire of Crime’. But when a series of violent events courses through the city, police and populace alike start asking themselves with increasing panic: “Who is behind all this?!” The answer borders on the realm of the impossible…
The Testament of Dr. Mabuse is a sequel to which of Lang’s previous films?
