Now you can make your own German Expressionist Film party with the videos in public domain available at Archive, thanks to K-otic (be careful with the shoutbox pop-up). The last addition was Faust, the F. W. Murnau‘s masterpiece based on the popular German tale, immortalized by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
If you never watched it do it now! Download it from the Internet Archive or watch it on Google Video. it’s wonderful, believe me.
For those that prefer read the book first (or after) watch the film, buy the book, or just go to the Project Gutenberg to download, or read on-line, the translation of Faust, or if your German is good enough, not like mine, try the original Faust: Der Tragödie erster Teil.
And what else? As I said before, other Murnau’s classic available at Archive is Nosferatu, which is also available as torrent. More classics there: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Fritz Lang’s M. They are also available at Google Video, as other German expressionist films: Caligari, Destiny, M and Nosferatu.

Many of the videos are no longer available, they were deleted from Internet Archive and Google Video.
